Ash Wednesday Liturgy

Today we came together as a school to share a liturgy to mark the beginning of Lent. Lent is the Church’s seasons for discerning and doing good. During Lent, Christians try to make changes to their lives in order to become more like Jesus and live a new life of Easter joy. They search for ways in which they can live “good” lives and turn away from what is not “right”. What people do during Lent helps them grow in holiness; growing in God’s way.

When we receive Ashes, we are showing everyone that we are sorry for living in the old way of sin. We are making a determined effort to try again to live in the new way of Jesus.
