The children were reminded once again about the importance of Lent. Fr John celebrated Mass with the Juniors and there was a short service for the younger children.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and all children were given a Mission Together box to collect money for those less fortunate in the world. Rather than buying lots of sweets, the children are encouraged to put some pocket money into the box each week.
We are also thinking about our CAFOD project-raising money for a clinic.
Mrs Winter, our RE co-ordinator, sent home a Lenten Calendar showing children what they could do each day to become better Christians.
