Lent at Sacred Heart
Academic Year 2014-15
This Lent we have many activities planned at Sacred Heart. Each activity will allow us time to reflect and think back over our actions. We will have the time to be still in the presence of the Lord and learn from his 40days and 40nights in the desert.
Ash Wednesday Service
On Monday 23rd February at 2:30pm, the whole school came together for a beautiful service. Children led in prayer and Father Chris distributed ashes to all children and adults. This service was a wonderful way to end our first school day back together.
Good Shepherd Appeal
As a school we came together to support the Good Shepherd Charity. We held cake sales, own clothes days, wake up shake up morning and a sponsored walk! We raised over £700.00!!
Lenten Prayer Trail
All children participated in a Lenten Prayer Trail. The followed a journey, stopping at different stations, similar to Jesus' journey on Good Friday. Children visited five stations: Sorry Stones, Fizzy Forgiveness, Be Still and Be Thankful, Worries to the Cross and New Life. The pictures are below. Children commented on how well it prepared them for the events of Holy Week.
