We began the season of Lent by gathering each grade for separate Ash Wednesday Prayer Services on Wednesday, February 17, 2021. The distribution of ashes looked a little different this year, due to the coronavirus pandemic. Students received ashes sprinkled on their heads, instead of receiving them on the forehead.
We pray that the crosses of ashes that mark our foreheads be a reminder to us and to those we meet that we belong to Your Son. May our worship and prayer and penitence this day be sustained throughout these 40 days of Lent. Bring us refreshed and renewed to the joyous celebration of Christ’s resurrection at Easter.
