As a Catholic community, today, we start our 40 days of Lent season with a school assembly.
Students and staff reflect on the meaning of Lent in three pillars, pray, fast, and give. During the assembly, Father Jakub challenges students to fast during this Lent by giving up eating chocolate, using social media and instead spending time to pray and do some acts of kindness. We also remember in our prayers all conflicts and disasters that are happing around the world, especially in Ukraine, Turkey, and Syria. We finish our Lenten Assembly by receiving Ash and we look forward to Lenten charity projects.
