Our Journey Through Lent
Our Lenten journey began on Ash Wednesday, with services throughout the day. Sixteen students read magnificently during the services and ashes were distributed by staff and Sixth Form students.
As part of our Lenten tradition all RE classes have had the opportunity to pray the Stations of the Cross. This form of dramatized prayer gives us a chance to meditate on the suffering of Christ and look forward in hope to the Resurrection. All of us have our “crosses” in life: Those struggles, obstacles and worries that can weigh us down in our lives. Through praying the Stations we realise that we do not carry these burdens alone, but through grace, we can turn that pain into glory.
On Wednesday, 30th March the whole school celebrated Mass in St Mary and St Michael’s Church. The occasion was all the more joyful as the pandemic prevented us from being at Mass in person together at Christmas. We especially thank the celebrants, readers, altar servers, and Deacon Tony for all their work in organising and running everything.
