  • What does the first Sunday of Lent mean? Quadragesima Sunday The name for the first Sunday in Lent is derived from the Latin word meaning "fortieth." The first Sunday of the Lenten season is 40 days before Easter. Today's mass: readings, homily, bidding prayers and children's liturgy can be found on our school APP under Resources\Parish.

  • Get ready to bury yourself in stacks and stacks of pancakes because Shrove Tuesday has arrived. Otherwise known as Pancake Day, Shrove Tuesday is today and marks the start of Lent for the next 40 days. Shrove Tuesday is always held on the day preceding Lent, the reason why the date changes each year is because it is commemorated exactly 47 days before Easter Sunday, which also changes date each year. Christians would mark Lent by abstaining from a whole range of rich foods such as butter, meat and milk, pancakes were, therefore, historically eaten on this day so households could use up the sugar, fats and eggs in their cupboards before the fasting season began. Some also believe the four ingredients in a traditional pancake represent the four pillars of Christianity, with the flour representing the 'staff of life', the eggs 'creation', milk as 'purity' and salt as 'wholesomeness'. Here we have a delightful recipe from our series of Cooking with Mr Nash - another recipe inspired by his 'Granny Nash'
