At Chorley St. Mary’s our aim in Collective Worship is to provide opportunities for celebration of various kinds, which:
• help all children to celebrate their love for one another and accept the mystery of God’s love
• enable all children to grow in conscious awareness of the spiritual dimension of life and to actively respond to it
• help all children to understand some of the elements of liturgy, through greetings, community praise, silence, song, etc.
This is done in class, in the hall (infants or juniors), at the end of Come and See topics as a Celebration Assembly and may also take place on other occasions in other places (e.g. outside rosary during May – The Month of Mary).
