The Door of Mercy visited the school on Wednesday morning and the teachers and staff gathered in the hall to reflect on the Pope's message for the Year of Mercy. The children sat beautifully and showed great respect when reflecting upon their lives and how they can be better people.
Ash Wednesday is one of the most popular and important holy days in the liturgical calendar. Ash Wednesday opens Lent, a season of fasting and prayer. The ashes symbolise the dust from which God made us. As the priest applies the ashes to a person's forehead, he speaks the words: "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return."
Today parents turned to watch our cast of the 'Twelfth Night' be awarded of their certificates of distinction, for the amazing performance and the Contact Theatre. These certificates are not easy to obtain, so for the children to be awarded a distinction is a very proud moment for their life and for The Divine Mercy.
