Each Monday morning a Whole School Collective Worship is celebrated and lead by senior staff members or some of the older children in school. Usually, we focus on a statement to live by, however during certain liturgical seasons eg: Advent, we prepare for what is coming.
During Lent 2016, we celebrated Holy Week through the use of prayer stations. This was a very moving, spiritual and powerful time in school and our children and families who also joined us, felt very touched by the stations and what they represented.
Each class also prepares and leads the rest of the school in Worship once a term in our Friday Worship and/or a Class Mass. The Class worships are centred on feast days and upcoming liturgical events in the calendar.
Every worship will start with a representative from each class coming to the focal area with a liturgical coloured tea light, depending on the time of year. Children enjoy this sense of belonging and will place the tea light onto the focal area and let the congregation know that their class has gathered to listen to God’s Word. At special liturgies, eg: Mother’s Day and Father’s Day liturgies, we ask parents to bring forth tea light also.
