Religious Education: Reflecting on the message from Scripture - by Justice

Religious Education

Religious Education began with thinking about the message from scripture
Sirach 17:20-28:
"The scripture today is telling us to call for repenting which means for us to forgive and confess the things that we have done wrong. Repentance is about telling God what you have done wrong and how you are going to fix it. Turn back to God and reannounce your sins".

LentL A time of reflection, a time for thinking about our journey towards Easter and Jesus.
