Lent

CAFOD Lent 2017 - Click on the link below to read more!
 
The season of Lent is a time of preparing for Easter. It is a penitential season of spiritual growth where we try to be better followers of Jesus. During this time we try to give more time to prayer, fasting and almsgiving (money to the 'poor' or good causes). The liturgical colour for Lent is purple.
 
In St Cuthbert's it is a special time where each child is encouraged to reflect on what Lent means for them. Every child is invited to take home our 'Travelling cross' which allows families to reflect and pray together as well as bringing the Easter story in to our homes.
 
Each class creates a focal point for Lent in their classroom and our school hall displays beautiful Stations of the Cross. Mrs Simpson from CAFOD will speak to the children about raising money through the 'Turn little fish into Big fish' campaign. After Easter Mrs Simpson will be back to see how the children got on and our Spiritual councillors from each class will share their class' experiences with the whole school.
