Collective Worship is a core aspect of our schools catholic identity. The importance of spending time in the presence of God has been fundamental to the Catholic way of life for centuries.
Here at St Joseph's, we ensure that our children have broad and varied opportunities to experience God through prayer and worship.
Our whole school comes together at least twice a week for worship.
On a Monday's, each class takes it in turn to share with the school the virtue of the week from Virtues to Live By.
On Friday's, our school meets together again in celebration of the past week. This assembly incorporates an element of Collective Worship at its beginning, focusing on the upcoming Gospel reading. Different classes once again take responsibility for leading this part of the assembly.
Welcome back Mass
We joined together as a whole school and Parish community on Friday to celebrate Mass with Father Nigel. Thank you to all parents and parishioners who were able to join us.
Collective Worship Autumn Term
Our children Brightened Up this Harvest and celebrated our Harvest Liturgy sharing Fabiano's story to show how we can help and support the work of CAFOD. Thank you to all who have donated food goods to enable us to distribute to those in need within our community.
Year 1 & 2
Our second Advent praise of 2019 was led by year 1 & 2.
Advent is a time to prepare for the birth of Jesus at Christmas time. There are many ways in which we prepare for Christmas like putting up Christmas decorations, getting ready to spend time with our families, putting up Christmas cards around the house, carol singing and lighting the Advent candles on the Advent wreath.
Year 5 & 6
Our first Advent Praise assembly of 2019 was led by year 5 & 6.
