Faith Facts this Week:-

1st Week of Lent

22nd Chair of St Peter
This feast commemorates Christ’s choosing Peter to sit in his place as the servant-authority of the whole Church. There is an object (A chair!) known as "the Chair of St. Peter." It is in the Vatican, at the back of St. Peter's basilica.

Lent is a way for Catholics and many Christians to remind themselves of the value of repentance. The austerity of the Lenten season is seen as similar to how people in the Old Testament fasted and repented in sackcloth and ashes. It reminds us to turn away from wrong doing and return to God. The pillars of Lent are, prayer, service and fasting.

God Bless
Nicola Winders
