Blessed Ash Wednesday
to you all

A blessed Ash Wednesday to you all

Dear colleagues,

A blessed Ash Wednesday to you all – may we use these 40 days of Lent to reflect, consider what’s important to us and grow. While Ash Wednesday and its traditional signing of the cross in ash on the forehead is a poignant reminder of our mortality, we can also see it as a timely reminder to make sure we are focused on those things which give us inspiration, energy and help us to be compassionate people, and to make sure we keep those things in the forefront of our minds as we journey towards Easter.

We normally would have met for a service this morning in the Church. In its stead I recorded these short videos for the students (which were shared with their classroom teachers earlier). The links below for anyone who might wish to view them.

With best wishes, and many blessings,

Emily
