Ash Wednesday

Rev. Mark led Collective Worship today and explained to the children that Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent for Western Christian churches. He talked about the use of ashes, made by burning palm crosses from the previous Palm Sunday, being very symbolic. Two children from each class came up to represent their class and have the symbol of the cross marked on their forehead.
