Ash Wednesday 2019

“Reminder that you’re dust and to dust you shall return”
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent. It is a time of prayer, fasting and penitence. Ashes were distributed to each year group in liturgical services throughout the morning.
Each service had a different focus.
|2nd Year||‘Prayer, fast, Alms giving’|
|3rd Year||‘Seizing the moment’|
|4th Year||‘Reduce / Reuse / Recycle’|
|5th Year||‘Be not afraid’|
|6th Year||‘All will be well received’|
The respect, reverence, solemnity, and engagement of the boys was admirable. Many took ashes home for family members.
I thank Mr Madden; our chaplains Ms McGlynn and Ms Crimmins; Fr. Dundon, Mr O’Reilly, the R.E. Department and Deans for making it possible.
