Prayer and liturgy are important elements of the children’s faith development as they provide opportunities for the children to deepen their relationship with God and experience being part of a faith community. Each day begins and ends with class prayer and the children are encouraged to contribute their own prayers at these times.
The focus of our Assemblies is communal prayer and classes take turns to prepare and lead the community in a short prayer service that is an expression of their current RE unit, Church season or feast day, or in response to a current issue that requires people of faith to respond or stand in solidarity with those in need.
Participation in Mass is also an important element of the children’s education in faith. On major feasts and special days, the whole school attends mass, again with parishioners, to celebrate, remember, pray and give thanks.
