Prayer and Liturgy

Prayer at St Bernadette's

Prayer is an invitation into fellowship with God through Jesus Christ and it allows us to draw near to God and learn more of his will for our lives. In its simplest form, prayer is defined as “talking to God.” By talking to God, children in our school learn more about who He is and what His plans are for us. The most important aspect of prayer for children is that they realise it is their way of communicating with God and is first and foremost a personal occasion. Children are encouraged to pray in different ways according to their age and personal development: 

  • quiet reflection/meditation
  • praying together
  • writing own prayers
  • prayers through music
  • learning traditional Christian / Catholic prayers
  • Staff are encouraged to pray with children, and to be an example for them
  • Every day, our children are taught to open their hearts and talk to God. Every class partakes in daily prayers which are said at different stages in the day.

Praying the Rosary

Rosary Club

The month of October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary. The GIFT team have had the opportunity to lead Rosary Club for children across the school and pray the Holy Rosary as a group. The children have been praying a decade of the rosary together and have been offering their own prayer intentions to Jesus.
