Today is Ash Wednesday. The children of all classes received the ashes today. It marks the beginning of Lent.
“Remember, You are dust, and unto dust you shall return.
Turn away from sin and be faithful to the gospel.
Repent and hear the Good News”
Some of the children of Fifth class are giving up:
watching TV, white bread, sweets, crisps, fizzy drinks and biscuits.
Some have chosen to do their homework quicker, fight less with younger brothers and sisters, help out more at home and to get more fresh air. All sounds good, only 40 days to go!!
