Prayer Life

The chaplaincy is open throughout the school day and pupils and staff are welcome to come at any time to spend time quietly in prayer or to ask for prayerful support. A number of staff gather 4 days a week for morning prayer and to intercede for the school community. Mass is celebrated once a week during a lunchtime and we have Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated particularly during Advent and Lent and other devotional prayer times include the Rosary. We are regularly visited by priests from the Brent Deanery and for this we are most thankful and very blessed.

DAILY

Various prayers which can be said at the beginning or end of each day are given in the homework diaries, class prayer file and on the weekly Collective Worship sheet. Staff are encouraged to use the themes each week from the Liturgical Calendar. There are also PowerPoint resources for Tutor Group prayer.
