Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday

Today, students from Reception to Year 12, gathered in the Chapel or the Hall to take their part in the Ash Wednesday Liturgy as we commence the season of Lent.  The prayer below, used in the Liturgy, reminds us of one aspect of the symbolism of the ashes.

Dear Friends in Christ, we use these ashes as a  mark of our turning towards God.  We ask you loving God to bless all
who seek your forgiveness and all who receive the mark of these ashes today.  May we keep this Lenten season faithfully
in preparation for the joy of Easter.

Yesterday we gathered to celebrate the investiture of our School Leaders at Mass celebrated by Fr Tony Densley.  This was an uplifting experience.  How the Christian life can be lived faithfully in our community was the subject addressed by two leaders who reflected very wisely on the readings chosen for this Mass.  An extract of their reflections is published in the front page of today's Bulletin.
