Collective Worship

  • The Angelus, a prayer with roots back to the 13th century, is a Marian devotion that is traditionally recited three times a day, usually at 9am, noon, and 6pm. Each recitation includes three Hail Marys with antiphons and responses in between each. The genius of this devotion, is that it focuses on the Incarnation (an essential mystery of our faith) and that its practice mirrors its content.
  • Jesus knew what brings real happiness so he taught us how to be truly happy or ‘blessed’. He did this by giving a special talk to lots of people on a mountain. It is called ‘The Sermon on the Mount’. He taught us about 8 attitudes which are called the Beatitudes.
  • Learn how Saint Francis lived out his life in poverty and preached about the life of Christ
