Celebration of 'the Word' - Prayer and Liturgy at St Wilfrid's

We believe that prayer and liturgy is concerned with giving glory, honour, praise and thanks to God.  It is our loving response, in word and action, to God’s invitation to enter into a relationship with Him, made possible through the work of Jesus Christ and the witness of the Holy Spirit.

In line with both our legal requirement and, most importantly, our faith commitments, prayer takes place daily.  It can take place in different forms; a single act of prayer and liturgy for all children, or separate gatherings for individual classes, key stages or whole school Gospel assemblies.  

Throughout the year, a carefully planned child-centred programme of prayer and liturgy is celebrated, taking into account key events in the Church’s liturgical calendar such as Advent and Lenten reflections.  It also considers Feast Days, world events, the work of groups such as CAFOD, inspirational people and recognises/includes other faith traditions.

Through our acts of prayer, whether in groups, classes, whole school or parish, we aim to provide a pathway for growth – by planting the seeds in our children- in the knowledge and love of Our Lord Jesus.

Finally, we are also delighted to be supported by our friends and colleagues at St Nicholas' High School, who kindly share their beautiful 'Sacred Space' resources The Pastoral Curriculum – St. Nicholas ( and also those at St John's Church in Hartford where additional activities can be accessed
