Ash Wednesday Marks the Start of Lent at Saint Matthias
This morning, the Saint Matthias school community gathered together to mark the start of the season of Lent with an Ash Wednesday service. Father Jordan shared with the students a bit about this history of showing our repenting for our sins. Ashes were distributed to all. As usual, Father Jordan asked the students many questions, both as a large group, and then to individuals on their way out the door. Our PreK class is especially excited when they spend time with their friend Father Jordan, and ended with them each sharing a High-Five.
Ash Wednesday Prayer
Father in Heaven, the light of your truth bestows sight to the darkness of sinful eyes. May this season of repentance bring us the blessing of Your forgiveness and the gift of Your light. Grant this through Christ our Lord.
