Lent is a spiritual journey from darkness to light, accompanied by the lengthening of the days.
It takes us from the penitence of Ash Wednesday to the joyful dawn of Easter Day.
Fr Mike led Classes 3 and 4 in a Reconciliation Service on Tuesday 29th March. Riley L and Ronan guided us in an examination of conscience, based on The Beatitudes. Afterwards, children were given the opportunity to go to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. As this was the last Lenten Reconciliation Service for our Year 6 children, we ended with a short reflection and prayer, that they will continue to be a light of hope to all they meet. Each child was called by name to light a candle, which were placed in the form of a cross.
