Worship and Celebrations
Prayer is a central part of the Catholic life of the school. The day always starts and ends with prayer. Pupils have many opportunities for prayer and reflection, both in class and at assemblies. They love preparing Class Worship for their peers, and this is a regular feature of our worshipping community.
Mass is celebrated regularly in school by our Parish Priest, Fr Brian, and is well attended by both parents and local parishioners.
Pupils prepare and take part in Masses: reading, writing prayers, serving, performing liturgical dances. Mass is celebrated on many occasions, including Welcome Mass, Feast Days and Leavers’ Mass. Children also prepare a range of liturgies – Celebration of Light, Rosary and Marion Liturgy, to name a few.
Pupils enjoy our themed weeks – such as the ‘Be Spirited Day’, which recently focused on the Year of St Joseph, and our Adoremus Art and RE week.
Staff pray together at meetings and new staff are effectively mentored on the nature and importance of Catholic worship. Prayer and liturgy are monitored regularly.
