This morning, all of the children in the school attended an Ash Wednesday Liturgy in the school hall. The children lead the Liturgy and distributed the ashes.
The ashes come from a previous Palm Sunday. The palms are burned, the ashes collected and then crushed into a fine, sooty powder and placed into bowls.
The ashes were blessed by a priest and the children were invited to come forward. Our Year 6 R.E Ambassadors made the sign of the cross on everyone’s forehead.
