Lenten Cross Challenge

The Lent Cross Challenge is an initiative we would like families to take part in during Lent. The intention behind the Lent Cross Challenge is to keep the cross at the heart of Easter. The challenge is to make 2 identical waterproof crosses from recycled materials.


The first cross will be displayed in school. The second cross will be displayed by families in a location of their choice, in Davyhulme, Urmston or Flixton, where it can be seen by people passing by. The challenge will be to locate the different crosses during the 40 days of Lent within our local area. Pictures can be taken and brought into school or Fr Kieren would like you to put photographs on the Parish facebook page (no images of children, just the cross located and the first name and initial of the surname).  Families can make their very own Lent Cross Challenge collage.  The 3 Parish schools and parishioners will be joining in the challenge, making and finding the crosses. Other churches and schools in the area will also be joining in.


Thank you for your support.
