LENT 2019

As we have heard Lent is a time of preparation for Easter, and a time where Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Many Christians think of the forty days of Lent as an opportunity to change their daily lives for the better and become closer to God.

In Lent, many Christians commit to some type of fasting, in a way of giving up certain luxuries in order to replicate the sacrifice of Jesus Christ's journey into the desert for 40 days. ...

In GASP we have been looking at ways in which we make small changes to our daily lives which will help and serve others and together created a Lent Calendar as a guide for us to follow in school.

Father Tommy is also delivering a 4 week Lent Course which gives us the opportunity to read and explore the scriptures together….this week we discussed what faith is and what it means to us.

Hannah Marshall, Youth worker from Potters House also set us a challenge during Lent….. not to be discouraged and to think of the positive rather than the negative. We all wrote down a prayer request and created a paper chain in the shape of a cross. Each day during GLAM we will remove one of the chains and pray to God regarding the prayer request.
