Repent it’s Lent

Posted: February 6, 2016 in Lent

This weeks is the beginning of the most solemn season of the liturgical year – Lent.  The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation through prayer, penance, repentance, almsgiving, and self-denial.
At school, we will mark Ash Wednesday with fast, abstinence and a services, where we are reminded  to “Repent and believe the Good News. As this year is the Year of Mercy, services will focus also on becoming Merciful like the Father.

During Lent every member of the school community is encouraged to go to Confession, walk through the Mercy Archway in the Peace Garden, and commit to an Act of Mercy. Prayer will take place every morning at 8:20am and The Stations of the Cross, will be said every Friday in the Chapel during Lunch.
