Second Grade Ash Wednesday Lesson

Students in Mrs. Freethey’s second grade class learned about Ash Wednesday and how the day marks the beginning of Lent during their religion class last week. Father Jerome added to the students’ lesson during his celebration of Mass by reminding them that the ashes mark an “exterior sign of an interior change” in our Lenten journey as Catholics. Students created a Lenten Book which they’ll use throughout this season of preparation to reflect on their relationship with Christ.

They are pictured below making Ash Wednesday crosses for the book.
