Prayer and Liturgy is a very important part of each school day, giving us all, staff and children, and sometimes parents and the wider Holy Trinity community, an opportunity to come together in prayer.
Mondays: ‘Word of the Week’ film Liturgical Prayer
Tuesdays: Whole School or Key Stage Liturgical Prayer led by SLT members
Wednesdays: Celebration Liturgical Prayer led by Catholic Life Ambassadors; Personal Prayer opportunities; Mark 10 Celebration of the Word
Thursdays: Whole School Singing Liturgical Prayer
Fridays: Class or Key Stage /Whole School Liturgical Prayer led by children.
Fridays Class or Key Stage Liturgical Prayer is prepared and led by the children themselves at an age appropriate level, giving them real ownership of the Catholic Life and Mission of our school. They are actively involved in planning, leading and evaluating Liturgical Prayer, both as a class and in small groups. Children plan using the standard format of: Gather – Listen – Respond – Mission
The key events of the liturgical year are celebrated in many forms throughout the year, including whole school Masses in church, Christmas Carol Services led by Y3/4, Nativity performances led by EYFS and KS1, Christingle Service led by Y3/4; Advent Liturgical Prayer led by Y5/6; Lenten Liturgies including Reconciliation, feast day celebrations, Adoration, the Rosary, Stations of the Cross, the Crowning of Our Lady; Remembrance Day Liturgical Prayer etc.
