Welcome to our activities around the theme of Lent

Colour in our picture of the desert

  The season of Lent is like the time of 40 days Jesus spent in the desert.  He spent this time alone, fasting and in prayer.  During his time there, Jesus was tempted to choose a different way to God’s way but he resisted this.

  Have a look around your church and see what changes may have occurred.  You might see the altar cloths and hangings have changed to purple and there are no flowers around.  Later in Lent some pictures or statues might have been covered up.  In your school, your RE table might be purple too.

  During Lent Christians prepare themselves for the great festival of Easter.  It is a time to stop, think and try to do better in the future.  Christians remember Jesus’ total self-giving by either choosing to give up something during Lent or choosing to do something extra.

  Have you chosen to give up something or to do something extra during Lent?

 

I wonder …

Sorry Prayer

In this prayer, we say sorry for the times that we have gone against what God wants.

 

O My God,

I am very sorry for the things I have done wrong.

Please forgive me and help me.
