Prayer and Liturgy

We believe that prayer and liturgy in our school aims to provide opportunity for all pupils and staff:

  • To contemplate something of the mystery of God
  • To reflect on spiritual and moral issues
  • To explore their own beliefs
  • To respond to and celebrate life
  • To experience a sense of belonging and develop community spirit
  • To develop a common ethos and shared values
  • To develop the skills of reverence, contemplation, reflection, interpretation, empathy and meditation
  • To enrich religious experience
  • To grow in liturgical understanding.
  • To reinforce prayers which are part of the Catholic tradition
  • To reinforce positive attitudes
  • To develop a sense of awe, wonder and inspiration in the person of Christ. 
Principles of prayer and liturgy

All liturgies at St Alban’s will:

  • Give glory and honour to God
  • Be a quality experience, fundamental to the life of the school and its Catholic character
  • Give children positive liturgical experiences, appropriate to their age, aptitude and family backgrounds in order to prepare them for the liturgical life of the Church.
