COLLECTIVE WORSHIP

Collective worship within St Brigid's is valued by all pupils and members of staff. Talking the time to reflect and celebrate helps children build social skills and strategies needed in future life. These services occur daily for all pupils in a variety of settings. Pupils have whole school, departmental and class assemblies.

This time is used to reflect on the moral teachings of The Bible, reflect on current events of significance to the pupils and support leaners with personal, social and emotional situations. Leaners also take part in group singing, celebration and awards assemblies.

All pupils also attend our school chapel weekly, for prayer and reflection with our chaplaincy team. They have the opportunity to take part in rosary each day. Pupils are expected to reflect and pray each morning, lunch and end of the school day within their lessons.

Watch some significant services below.

OUR PRAYERS

Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,
on earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread

and forgive us our trespasses

as we forgive those who trespass against us;

and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.
Amen

The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.


Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Amen.

Angel of God,
my guardian dear,
To whom God's love
commits me here,

Hail, Holy Queen

Hail, holy Queen, mother of Mercy.
Hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To thee do we cry,
poor banished children of Eve;
to thee do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping,
in this vale of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us;
and after this our exile, show unto us
the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving,
O sweet virgin Mary.
Pray for us O Holy Mother of God,
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Fatima Prayer

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins,
And save us from the fires of hell.
Lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of thy mercy.
Amen

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in this day of battle.
Be our defence against the wickedness

and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who wander through the world
for the ruin of souls.
Amen
