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 3 days a week for morning prayer and to intercede for the school community. On a Wednesday lunchtime we often have a short time of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and when possible Mass is celebrated. Other devotional prayer times include the Rosary. A number of priests visit our school community 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.
