Lenten Activities at St Teresa’s

Lenten Activities at St Teresa’s

Pupils in all our classes have been journeying together during Lent, towards Holy Week and Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday.

We began our journey by making a Lenten promise to God, and during Lent we have tried hard to do three things: to pray, to fast (give up something small) and to give to charity (helping others).

Take a look at some of our pictures which include: weekly liturgies, Stations of the Cross, prayer stations, liturgical dancing, singing, Easter cards Easter gardens and many more.

As a whole school, we have put together a production of ‘The Greatest Story Ever Told’ which can be viewed by logging into our YouTube channel. We hope you enjoy watching it!
