Faith in Practice
On Ash Wednesday we prayed together, received the ashes and, following Church teachings, didn't eat meat.
Fr Stanley came in to bless and distribute the ashes to the Sixth Form students, including a group of volunteer ministers. The ministers went out with their pots of ash into every classroom, led prayers with the other students and distributed the ashes.
For some students, it was their first time as a volunteer and they did extremely well.
The Season of Lent
On Ash Wednesday we entered the season of Lent, when we prepare ourselves to celebrate Easter. Lent is characterised by acts of charity, prayer and fasting.
As part of our Lenten acts, Trinity pupils will take part in the CAFOD Fast Day and learn about CAFOD's latest projects.
