Mass & Liturgies

Prayer and Worship are at the heart of our Catholic community.  There are opportunities for prayer each morning, before and after lunch and at the end of the school day.  In addition, children at Key Stage Two pray The Angelus each day at 12.00.

We are very fortunate to have the parish church of St Luke's and Holy Cross on our school site and we regularly visit for Mass, reconciliation, services and RE curriculum related work.

Our Mass and liturgy timetable is in line with key celebrations in the year of the church and ensures that whole school Mass, Class Mass and Year Group Mass opportunities are available for our parents and children.

We are very proud of the festivals which are observed here at Holy Cross, which include the Coronation of Our Lady in May, the Corpus Christ procession in June and the annual Festival of Light service in December. 

This all serves to ensure that the Catholicity, in our school is alive and vibrant. As one parent commented, 'God's heart is beating very strongly' in our daily life.
