Lent 2017

 lentSince the early days of Christianity the 40 days before Easter have been observed with great devotion. It became the custom of Christians to prepare for this through penitence and fasting.

Therefore all Stopfordians are invited to observe Lent, by entering into a period of self-examination and repentance; by prayer, self-denial; and by focusing on God’s holy word.

ancient-lent-still-webWe will be asking every member of the Stopfordian family to give something up for Lent. This will once again be in partnership with the Charity ‘Phil the Bag’. As part of the self examination process of Lent, every member of the school will be asked to find an item of clothing they no longer need or use and then GIVE IT UP to our Lent appeal.

Finally we ask you to remember all members of the Stopfordian family in your prayers as we journey into Lent, especially those facing academic and personal challenges.
