The season of Lent begins

Father Michael, head-boy and head-girl lead the Douay Martyrs School Community – staff and 1300 pupils -  in prayer as we begin the journey of Lent.  

It has been a very busy morning with Years 7-13 participating in their Ash Wednesday Liturgies and receiving the ashes.  The ashes were the palms of last Palm Sunday.  So they are ashes of hope.  We take them to remind us that we are not only part of the creation of God but also we are equal in His sight.     

Each year Lent offers us a time of preparation, a time for prayer and a time of digging deep to discover and become more like how we are created, in the image and likeness of God – beautiful.
