Shrove Tuesday - Palm Burning

Shrove Tuesday - Palm Burning
Denis Hooper

On Shrove Tuesday the palms from last year's Palm Sunday were burnt on the Terrace.

Lenten intentions were filled out by the students and placed on the fire along with the palms.

Each student who placed his intention on the fire was rewarded by a bar of chocolate.

The ashes from the fire will be used tomorrow for the placing of the Ashes.
