prayer life of the school

Prayer and Liturgy in a Catholic school is concerned with giving glory, honour, praise and thanks to God. It is our loving response, in word and action, to God’s invitation to enter into friendship, made possible through Jesus, God’s Son, and the witness of the Holy Spirit. It is an integral part of the life of the Catholic school, putting Christ at the centre of education, helping to create and sustain the Catholic ethos, making it tangible.

Year Group Masses:

On the 17th May, Year 3 celebrated mass at Immaculate Heart. Monsignor Faley talked about our special gifts that we have used this year at school. We wrote the bidding prayers, joined in with offertory and sang ‘Christ, be our light’ at the end.

Year 3

On Wednesday 3rd May, Year 5 celebrated a wonderful mass at Immaculate Heart with Father Andrew, their teachers, parents and the wider congregation. We wrote Bidding Prayers and talked about the feast day of Saint James and Saint Philip. We took part in the offertory and we finished with our school hymn, ‘O Virgin Fair, Star of the Sea’. It was very special to be in church again.
