Ash Wednesday Whole School Liturgy

Thank you Father Farrell for celebrating Whole School Liturgy with us this first day of Lent, Ash Wednesday.  Together as a BCS family, we spent time to pray and evaluate how we’re doing in our spiritual life.  We are grateful for this Lenten season, as we identify the spiritual areas in which we can grow, and the sinful areas that we need to avoid.  We received ashes today as an outward expression of our need to begin again.  Pictures from Ash Wednesday Mass

Even now, says the LORD,
return to me with your whole heart,
with fasting, and weeping, and mourning;
Rend your hearts, not your garments,
and return to the LORD, your God.
For gracious and merciful is he,
slow to anger, rich in kindness,
and relenting in punishment.
Perhaps he will again relent
and leave behind him a blessing,
Offerings and libations
for the LORD, your God.
Joel 2:12-14
