Welcome to our school Liturgy Blog.
Rosary Group – Fridays
As we enter the month of October, we are reminded that it is the month of the Most Holy Rosary. We make a special effort this month to pray a decade of the Rosary at least once a week. It was great to see so many of you praying the Rosary at lunch time today and look forward to seeing you in the courtyard at 12:45 pm on Friday next week.
Adoration with Arch-Bishop Bernard Longley
We were lucky enough to take part in adoration with other schools from across the Diocese. Via a live link, we were able to join the Arch-Bishop for a half an hour Adoration service, which involved singing, prayer and spending some time in quiet contemplation in the Real Presence of Christ. Thanks to Fr Tony who also joined us to lead the service in school.
This year, we are increasing the number of prayers that children need to know by heart. We will be learning these prayers in school but would encourage you to use them in daily family prayer. After Christmas, we will be asking children to produce designs to reflect the content of each prayer and the winning designs will be displayed in classrooms.
Please see the PowerPoints on this web page to find out which prayers your children are learning this year.
We go to say the Rosary on a Friday lunchtime. We say one Our Father and 10 Hail Mary’s. As well as that we think about what season it is (Lent we say the Sorrowful Mysteries, Easter – Glorious Mysteries, Christmas – Joyful Mysteries etc.) Two children from the Liturgy group lead saying the Rosary.
