Celebration of the Word
Celebration of the Word (or collective worship) is an integral part of school life at Sacred Heart and is central to the Catholic tradition. Collective worship provides opportunities for our community to contemplate the mystery of God, reflect on spiritual and moral issues, experience a sense of belonging and grow in liturgical understanding.
The timetable of Celebration of the Word in our school is as follows:
Mon - Whole School - rooted in the Gospel
Tue - Class - linked to the Virtues
Wed - Whole School - linked to Catholic Social Teaching
Thur - Class - child led
Fri - Whole School - celebration / singing
Children are taught to participate fully in collective worship and are encouraged to plan and lead as appropriate to their age.
As well as daily Celebration of the Word, we hold celebrations in line with the church liturgical year including Easter, Mary devotion, Sacred Heart feast day, Advent and Lent services, Remembrance and Holy Week services.
