New life

Many students at St James’ have been involved in RE Lenten challenges – setting themselves goals around fasting, prayer and almsgiving. Not only are they a goal in themselves, but students are noticing a change in relationship with others.
A final Lent challenge has now been set. Students have been given a small bulb.

During the Easter holidays they are encouraged to plant in, water it, care for it and watch it grow into a beautiful flower.
This image is similar to what happens to us during Lent. Through our fasting, prayer and almsgiving we prune back the clutter that has taken over, look outward towards others and continue to grow into unique and beautiful person God intended us to be.
