Dear Parents and carers,
Why do we eat pancakes on Shrove Tuesday? In Christian traditions, the 40 days before Easter are known as Lent, and they mark the time that Jesus spent fasting in the desert. ... And on Shrove Tuesday eggs, butter and stocks of fat would be used up. Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, is the traditional feast day before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday. Lent – the 40 days leading up to Easter – was traditionally a time of fasting and on Shrove Tuesday, Christians went to confession and were “shriven” (absolved from their sins).
St Mary's will celebrate Shrove Tuesday on 5th March at recess. Please advise if you do not wish your child to participate.
Ash Wednesday opens Lent, a season of fasting and prayer.
Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the Lenten fast and is the day after Shrove Tuesday, also known as Pancake Tuesday or Pancake Day.
St Mary's will have an Ash Wednesday Mass on Wednesday 6th March at 12:00pm.
Holy Week Focus will be Thursday 11th April at 10am. An invitation will be sent asking for community members to participate in the symbolic washing of the feet which occurred at the Last Supper the evening before the Crucifixion.
On Thursday St Mary’s school held their opening school Mass.
Year 6 were presented with their leadership badges & and area of responsibility for the year and kindergarten were given a welcome certificate.
A lovely morning tea was shared after Mass with family and friends.
