Lent and CAFOD
WHAT IS LENT?
Lent is a time of preparation for Easter.
The word 'Lent' comes from the word for Spring. It is the period of 40 days leading up to Easter. During Lent, Christians remember the time when Jesus went into the desert to fast and pray before beginning his ministry.
After the half term holiday we will be thinking about what we can do during the period of Lent. We will be using the CAFOD 'Give It Up!' resources for schools, to help us reflect on this important time.
