Ash Wednesday Services Remind Us That Lent Is About Forgiveness
Princethorpe College pupils and staff were invited to mark the beginning of Lent in a series of Ash Wednesday services, on Wednesday 2 March.
Held virtually at Tutor Time and then in person in the Chapel at lunchtime, the services offered an opportunity for contemplation and reflection.
Father Alan Whelan, MSC, led the services, reminding us that Lent is a time for Christians to reflect, pray, fast and think about others, and that an overriding theme to Lent is the importance of forgiveness. He spoke about the period of Lent and how the 40 days is a time for Christians to reflect and put their faith into practice asking, ‘What are you going to do for this season of Lent?’
