As a Catholic school and a part of the wider church, we aim to provide all members of our community opportunities to participate in Liturgy. This is achieved through celebration of the Eucharist as a whole school – Opening Year service, Carol service, and our Graduation service as well as more intimate celebrations in year groups and in classes. An example of this would be that every November (the month of remembrance, the religion teachers will escort our students to the St. Conleth’s Church to remember those who have died.
The Religious Education teacher prepares the students so that they may participate actively at the Eucharistic celebration. Class masses enable the students to reflect on their own faith.
The Church seasons are highlighted with liturgies particular to the theme. The students all receive the Ashes on Ash Wednesday in a liturgy held by our school chaplain, Sr. Kate Cuskelly.
Other Liturgies highlight the expectations or responsibilities of being Catholic. These include attending and participating in the Parish Liturgies as arranged, with this of course providing an avenue for worship as well as a link to the parishes. This is most evident when our Pope John Paul II Award participants volunteer in their parish.
