Ash Wednesday: Burying the Word “Alleluia”

Mar 7th, 2019

On Ash Wednesday, K-5 students participated in the ancient ceremony of burying the word “Alleluia” deep in the snow banks of the Annunciation campus.

During the entire 40 days of Lent the word Alleluia is completely absent from the liturgy of the Church.

The act of burying the Alleluia is a kind of “fasting” letting the Alleluia be dormant until the burst of a joyful affirmation of the Resurrection on Easter Day!
