Collective worship is an integral part of daily life here at St. Francis Xavier. We gather daily as a whole school, key stage or class community to listen and respond to the scriptures.
In this year of the word (The God who speaks) the Bishops of England and Wales have challenged us to reflect on the scriptures and apply their meaning and lessons to our own lives.

''Together, we pledge our commitment to raising awareness about the stewardship of creation.''
The quote above is from Pope Francis. Year 3 have been discussing the fires that are occurring in Australia. We should all have Australia in our hearts.
We walked the path of our lives and made a promise to God to listen to the lessons taught by special people.
Year 4 conducted a liturgy about the devastating bush fires in Australia. We all said a prayer for the people and creatures affected. #laudatosi
In Year 1, we were exploring the church. We built a church in class and discussed with others which were important parts.
To mark the feast of the Epiphany, we gathered around the crib to witness the three wise men present Jesus with their gifts. We were asked to think about our own gifts that we would bring to Jesus.
In Reception during our RE lesson we were talking about Birthdays. We talked about what Christians do during advent. Children made their own advent wreaths.
Today on our RE lesson we had some parents. We talked about how we welcome the baby in God's family. We acted out a baptism. Next the children made a sign of the cross on the parents heads and they said " In the name of the Father and Son and Holy Spirit Amen".
