Today as a community we celebrate Ash Wednesday which marks the first day of the season of Lent.
The meaning of this significant day was explained to the students on College Assembly and we explored the ideals of Lent being a time where we observe of period of doing good deeds, fasting, saying sorry for any wrong doings and reflecting and praying. The liturgy also gave us the opportunity to launch our own Caritas Project Compassion Appeal where students are asked to give a little where they can in order to help those in countries less fortunate than ourselves.
Thank you to the students for the respect that they showed throughout this liturgy and the manner in which they engaged in receiving the ashes which reminds us as members of a united community to concentrate on being the best people we can be and to be kind to all those around us.
We wish you every blessing as we begin our Lenten Journey together as a St James College Community.
