Starting Lent at St James's

At St James School church assembly today at Alexis St and Old Jamaica Rd I told the children about Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.

They already knew that Lent lasted forty days and they knew all about Shrove Tuesday, too, because Mrs Willis had made some pancakes in assembly.

But today was about Ash Wednesday and ash.

At both sites I had a few children up to show how the sign of the cross is placed on our foreheads with ash, as a sign that we are sorry for what we have done as wrong, but  that we trust in Jesus death for us to bring forgiveness.

These are the four children from Key Stage One after the assembly.
