Lent- Ash Wednesday
We are now in the Church season of Lent. The first day of Lent was last Wednesday and is called Ash Wednesday. It is the start of our preparation for Easter. Lent is a special time when the church invites everyone to examine their lives, to make Lenten promises and to make a fresh start.
Liturgical Year: Ash Wednesday/First Sunday of Lent Cycle: B
Gospel: Matthew 4:1-11
We’re going on a Lent adventure! In the Gospel for Ash Wednesday, Jesus challenges us to pray, to fast and to give. So today, and throughout Lent, our resources will encourage children to make their prayer life richer, to stop doing some things which in turn will free them to go out to others with acts of service.
