We believe that Prayer brings us closer to God and to one another. We pray for ourselves and the needs of others around the world. We pray daily in class and as a community. These are the prayers that are prayed with the children each day. Please take time at home to pray them together.

AND IN THIS SPECIAL YEAR OF ST.JOSEPH
SUPPORTING SPIRITUAL FORMATION OF TEACHERS
Throughout the school year, we have a dedicated program so that staff can develop their own prayer life and spirituality. Staff gather for morning prayer throughout the year as well as receive spiritual direction and an annual retreat.
Praying through the seasons…
The year in the Church is called the Liturgical Year. This where we are invited to follow the times of significance in the life of Jesus with special place given to Mary and the saints. Well prepared liturgies marking these seasons are celebrated in school and with our parish community. Colour plays a significant part in displaying which part of the year we are celebrating.
