Lent Pots

IMG_7421It has become a tradition that, each year, plain clay money pots are bought from a pottery in Bahrain, later painted in bright colours and whacky designs, all ready for the start of Lent. Then the serious business begins.

IMG_7425Parishioners are encouraged to take a pot home and so donate their loose change. After Lent, members of the Friday Club ceremoniously smash the pots. All proceeds are donated to a local charity.
