From Mr Hawthorne
Today is the beginning of Lent as it is Ash Wednesday. Every pupil and every member of staff had a chance to go to the Kamwokya room to receive ashes. Father King led the services along withthe 6th year Eucharistic Ministers and pupils from each year group to say the readings and psalms.
Additional from Mrs Macfadyen
Lenten services will be held every Monday, Wednesday and Friday with Fr King, with Eucharistic services every Tuesday and Thursday for the remainder of Lent.
The SCIAF Wee Boxes Appeal is running during Tutor Time, along with our usual Lenten Charities fundraising events organised by the pupils in their RE classes. Pupils are also being invited to take part in the SCIAF sponsored fast, with forms available from Miss Kane (younger pupils should seek permission from parents).
The school is also looking forward to Patron’s Day on March 25th, with Bishop Devine celebrating Mass.
