The Lenten Season is upon us. The Kindergarten students participated in a beautiful liturgy on Ash Wednesday. The students learnt that Lent is the time between Ash Wednesday and Easter. We spoke about how Lent is a time we prepare for Easter by praying and by thinking, speaking and acting as Jesus would. Lent is a good time for all of us to work at being the best we can be. We all make mistakes. Sometimes we are unkind, sometimes we have trouble sharing, sometimes we don’t listen well to our parents or teachers. Lent is a time to focus on praying more often, and doing good deeds to be more like Jesus. During Lent the children will be creating a Kindness Quilt to display how they show kindness. Currently, the students have been making cards for a young boy in one of our schools who is staying at CHEO. Mateo's only wish is to have cards made for him. The students have been busy sending him prayers and wishing him well. Here is a video we watched to help explain The Easter Story.
