On Wednesday 14th February, Father Kevin held a special service with year 6 to mark Ash Wednesday. Ash Wednesday is an important date on the Christian calendar as it marks the start of Lent. For 40 days from here on in, Christians go through a period of fasting which is to remember the same amount of time Jesus spent fasting in the wilderness. Father Kevin encouraged us not only to think of things that we can give up ourselves, but also how we can help others during this time. He also marked our foreheads with the sign of the cross. We would like to talk Father Kevin for conducting this very special service and we are looking forward to persevering in the things we have given up for Lent.
