The Season of Lent 2021


Ash Wednesday:

Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel.

Ash Wednesday 2021 falls during the February half term on Wednesday 17th February. Ash Wednesday marks the start of the beginning of Lent. Lent is a season of fasting, giving to charity and prayer. We try to think about those things that we must change so that our hearts can return to God. Click on the link to the right to find out more about our own Lenten challenge at Boston St Mary's. 


Friday 26th February - CAFOD Family Fast Day:

For this Lent's Family Fast Day, could you swap a meal for a simple bowl of soup or could you not each any luxury items such as crisps, chocolate or biscuits? Maybe you will only drink water all day instead of any juices or fizzy drinks?

Maybe you could say this special prayer before one or more of your meals? Maybe you could make a donation to CAFOD?

You can find some yummy soup recipes here if you're grown up would like to help you make one:
