Ash Wednesday

By February 18, 2015February 25th, 2015No Comments

Today is Ash Wednesday. Today we also get our midterm break! Fr John McCarthy came in and put ashes on our foreheads. The promise for Lent is to give up something. The reason we have Lent is that Jesus fasted in the desert for forty days and forty nights.

After Lent, comes Easter. For Lent, I am giving up chocolate, sweets, crisps, fizzy drinks and buns. I can’t wait for Easter!



Today is Ash Wednesday. We got ashes on our heads. It was exciting to see what the young ones would make of it. Half of them rubbed it off. It’s Lent too. I don’t think anyone wants to give up anything. I asked Mammy if I could give up baths and instead I would take showers! But she said no. Father McCarthy came in to do the ashes which was very good of him.
