Collective Worship at STM

Year 5 Mass Thursday 10th February 2022

Well done to our Year 5 children who celebrated their first year group Mass with Father Michael today. It has been 23 months since the children have planned, delivered and celebrated a Mass together in school. The children read with grace, sang with passion and were spiritually filled when they received the Body of Christ. Looking forward to being able to celebrate more Masses in the very near future. Well done Year 5 - you also brought a tear to Mrs Doran-Hannon's eye with how proud she is of you!!

Class Act of worship

Every Tuesday and Thursday, a child from each class lead an Act of Worship based either on the Gospel for the day or a Gospel that relates to them. The children discuss the Gospel through reading and pictures as well as sharing their own intentions and for the wider community. The children display Human Dignity and Subsidiarity through their leadership and mediation skills.


Benediction

On Thursday 16th December, the children and staff joined Father Jonathon in a service of Benediction to finish the end of the term. We are delighted to have started our liturgies involving the priests after such a long time! Thank you Father Jonathon for guiding us in our faith journey in understanding the importance of Benediction.

Gospel Assembly: Monday

Each week, our Year 6 prefects meet together to plan a Gospel assembly that is delivered every Monday morning. During the assembly, the children reflect on a picture of the Gospel, read the Gospel and apply their learning through talk. The children make links to the Gospel by focusing on a word and how they are going to apply their gift at home, school and the wider community.

Expectation assembly: Wednesday

Every Wednesday Mrs Coward delivers Expectations assembly. In the assembly there are links made to our UNICEF rights, aspects of Catholic Social Teaching that we live by and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural links. It is our mission to demonstrate Solidarity, common good, life and dignity, participation, option for the poor and vulnerable, rights and responsibilities and dignity.

Achievement assembly: Friday

Every Friday Mrs Lodge delivers an assembly all around the week's achievement. It is a celebration for those who have achieved their Outstanding Learners badges after receiving 3 Outstanding Learner stickers.

Class Assembly: Friday

Throughout the school year each class plan their Act of Worship around a theme relating to the Bible. The assembly is delivered to parents incorporating different ways of demonstrating how we worship God through hymn, prayer, action, poetry and dance. The children are proud to lead their assemblies and showcase their religious knowledge. It is the children's mission to demonstrate Solidarity, common good, life and dignity, participation, option for the poor and vulnerable, rights and responsibilities and dignity.
