Today we began our Lenten Journey with Ash Wednesday Mass celebrated with Fr Peter. It was a lovely celebration with Fr Peter reminding us to aspire to Be More, the theme for 2021 Project Compassion.
In many ways Shrove Tuesday is about beginning a time to ‘unclutter’ our lives. We know it as a great day to eat pancakes but it also has special religious significance, and provides a valuable message for all people.
It was wonderful to see so many of our families at our Welcome Night. Our teachers enjoyed reacquainting with many families while also welcoming new families to our community.
