Both live and online Ash Wednesday celebrations were organised by the respective Chaplaincy teams and staff from our three schools, marking a special and spiritual start to the Lenten period.

PRIMARY SCHOOL

Two celebrations were organised (8am for p3-p6 and 9.30am pp-p2), with the help of Chaplaincy, the Alive & Ekoskola Teams, staff, the Senior Management Team, and the Jesuit Community.

  

Students and staff were accompanied on a guided prayer session by Fr Ray Pace sj.

This Lent’s theme was also launched: Ħbieb ta’ Ġesu; Ħbieb tal-Ambjent, which is in line with this year’s main theme Embrace: The Earth.

SECONDARY SCHOOL

During a dedicated session with Fr Paul Zammit sj and Ms Mary Bonnici Xuereb, secondary school students and staff shared their reflections on Ash Wednesday and the meaning of Lent.

SIXTH FORM

A set of reflective sessions for staff and students were organised by Ms Cristina Spiteri (Chaplain) and Br Alex Duma.

Fr Oliver Borg Olivier sj was invited to share some points for reflection on Lent & Fasting, which were well received by staff. All were very grateful to Fr Oliver for helping us reflect and pray about how to use this time of Lent to grow closer to God.

The student session focused on how Lent can make us more aware of what clutters our heart. They reflected about what we can give up to create more space in our heart to connect with God and with others.
