Images of Shrove Tuesday
The day began after Morning Prayer and Mass with the burning of last year's palm crosses to provide the ash for tomorrow's ceremonies.
The nearest we get to carnival here at St Arvans are the pancakes served in the Meeting Rooms to coincide with the arrival of the school bus! We had about fifty children and adults through the door this afternoon.
Now a couple of confessions & then, tomorrow, down to the serious business of Lent, the Springtime of the Church's year.
