Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent. Here at Santa Sophia Preschool we like to break it down to a level that a preschool aged child will understand.This Wednesday 3/1/2017, each class will take time to visit the church and hear from Fr. Devdas about what Ash Wednesday means. IF a child chooses to receive ashes they will have that option. NO ONE will be forced to have ashes placed on their forehead.
Teacher to a 3-year-old:
“During this time we think about the things we have done wrong, and promise not to do them again. We remember that Jesus loves us very much and wants us to be in heaven with Him. We wear ashes on our forehead given to us by a Priest to remind us of that promise we made.”
