Lent at St Mary’s and St Benedict’s







This year at school as we can’t be together at the beginning of Lent on Ash Wednesday, we would like to keep in touch and share this special time together.

On your class page you will find a short video about Lent and what it is all about, you could watch this together at home to remember why we celebrate Lent and Easter.

We have also found an exciting challenge ’40 random acts of kindness for Lent’. We would love to see how many of these kind acts you can carry out during Lent.

The final part of preparing for Easter is thinking about Lenten promises. We would like you to send in a short video or photograph of what your Lenten promise is going to be this year via the office email address. All the videos and photos we receive will be added to our school webpage to celebrate all of our Lenten promises we have made as a school community. 😊
