For Our Catholic schools, liturgy and prayer provide an opportunity for students, staff and parents to celebrate their life and identity as members of the Church. Liturgy and prayer helps create a sense of purpose and identity and draws the school community into an understanding of our shared humanity, links us with the Church throughout the world, and invites us to share the Good News.
Prayer, as the raising of the mind and heart to God or the requesting of good things from God, contributes to the faith growth of individuals and the building of Christian community.
Schools draw on the richness of the Catholic tradition, the wider Christian tradition and their own particular charism to nurture the prayer life of the school.Download Document
