Worship and Celebrations
Mass is celebrated regularly in school by the parish priests and is well attended by both parents and local parishioners.
Pupils both prepare and take part in class Masses, where appropriate act as Altar Servers and distribute ashes on Ash Wednesday. A service of Reconciliation is also celebrated in Lent and Year 3 pupils prior to their Holy Communion take part in the ‘Celebration of Light’ service.
Staff pray together at every meeting and new staff are effectively mentored on the nature and importance of Catholic worship. Prayer and liturgy are monitored regularly.
Pupils enjoy our themed weeks – such as the ‘Be Spirited’ week and our Adoremus Art and RE week – and enjoyed concentrating on Holy Week in detail.
Pupils have many opportunities daily for prayer and reflection in class, at assemblies (Mon, Wed, Fri) and at end of day prayers in the Hall. Classes take it in turns to prepare prayers for the end of the day gathering.
