Collective Worship and Assemblies
Collective Worship is an important part of who we are at St Mary’s. We pray and worship in a variety of ways at different times and different places. We have whole school Masses and class Masses, assemblies led by the teachers and assemblies led by the children, in particular our wonderful Pupil Chaplains. We reflect on our own, in groups, in classes or all together. We sing together, we pray together, we listen, reflect and respond to scripture. We've even become experts at online assemblies and socially distanced worship - nothing can stop our collective worship and we firmly believe that a family that prays together, stays together! Sometimes our worship raises the roof and at other times it is quiet, meaningful and reflective. We take our lead from the church’s liturgical year. We help our children to understand the teachings of the Church and to translate their faith into their daily life.
