RE – Lent / Easter

Your topic work for today and tomorrow is R.E. and you will be thinking about the question:

Why is Lent an important time in the liturgical year?

• What is Lent?
• Why is Lent important?
• Think carefully and make links to your own experiences and understanding of the liturgical year

Scripture looked at in this unit so far:

Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.  All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” (John 6:35 37 51)
