Watering the roots of the Faith

Prayer and worship will be integrated into the daily life of the school to an extent unmatched in mainstream schooling.

During each day pupils will have a period of 30-40 minutes set aside for religious education. This period will be devoted to advancing  the students’ knowledge of the Catholic faith in three ways:

  • Children will learn by heart the central prayers of the Church – the Sign of the Cross, the Lord’s Prayer, the Hail Mary, the  Angelus, the Memorare, the Hail Holy Queen and others.
  • They will become familiar with Scripture in general but in particular with the parables of the New Testament and their significance for the leading of Christian lives.
  • They will learn Catholic doctrine, with an appropriate degree of  understanding, directly from the Catechism.

Catholicism is a religion of love and joy and, with the firm foundations laid, we hope to inspire the next generation of Catholics through frequent contact with clergy, weekly Mass (at least), and enthusiastic celebration of liturgical feasts. In this way they will Bear witness to the light.
