Collective Worship is an important part of who we are at St. Benedict’s. We pray and
worship in a variety of ways at different times and different places. We have whole
school Masses, Masses with the Parish, whole school and class liturgies led by
both teachers and children. During Lockdown, we became innovative and conducted our
various acts of worship via Teams so everyone could be included, even those at home.
We take our lead from the Church's liturgical year, helping our children to know and
understand the teachings of the church and to reflect this in their daily life.
Led by children in all year groups, this was a celebratory Mass in the school hall
attended by a large group of parents and parishioners. Our community came together to
give thanks for the harvest and all the wonderful things we are lucky enough to receive.
All our Harvest donations were for our local charity, the Medway Foodbank.
During the month of October, we prayed the Rosary together every morning during our
family morning prayer time. We also came together as whole school to take part in ‘One
Million Children Pray the Rosary.’
