Ash Wednesday Wednesday<p style="text-align:left;"><img class="ms-rtePosition-2" alt="ash-wednesday.png" src="/latest-news/PublishingImages/ash-wednesday.png" style="margin:5px;width:164px;height:182px;" />Next Wednesday, March 6, is an important day in the Church calendar as we begin the season of Lent. On Ash Wednesday, as a school, we will gather and receive a cross of ashes on our foreheads as a sign that we are followers of Jesus. Parents and friends are welcome to join us for 9.30am Mass or a liturgy at 11.30am with our Prep-Year 2 students. During Lent, we are asked to consider three things - giving up something, giving to and praying. Our students are being encouraged to think about giving up something that will make a difference to those around them.</p><p style="text-align:left;">As a community, we will be 'giving to' the Project Compassion appeal and will be raising money over the next six weeks to support children without food or a safe place to sleep.
