St. Agnes' Catholic Primary School

Act justly, love tenderly, walk humbly with your God

Collective Worship

Here at St. Agnes' we place a particular importance on gathering together for worship. This could be  through a whole school Mass in our Parish church, St. Agnes' Crawcrook, or through whole school worship and assemblies or class Liturgical Prayer which happens weekly in our chapel. The school has an act of Liturgical Prayer each day. These include prayers in the morning, before and after lunch and at the end of the school day.

The school works closely with and are supported in the development of the faith by our Parish Priest, Fr. John James, who is a regular visitor in school. He often pops in during lunchtime and spends time talking to the children, and often ventures out into the playground and stays for some lunch. We also join Fr James and parishioners for Mass in St Agnes' Church every half term and on other special days. We also mark special events in the liturgical calendar, such as Remembrance on 11th November, Holy Week and Christmas.  During Holy Week,  Year 5 and 6 children join with pupils of St Joseph's, Highfield to lead ’The Way of the Cross’- this is always a powerful and moving liturgy.
