Prayer & Liturgy

14

As a Catholic community, prayer and liturgy is very important to the life of St Brigid’s College.

It is in our understanding of our relationship with God that we come to understand ourselves and who we are. Prayer is an important part of our daily school life as it reminds us that our day is devoted to God and it is through God’s grace alone that we continue to strive to be a unique, whole and holy  person. Our School Chaplain Fr Peter Hudson provides spiritual guidance and leadership for our school students, staff and community.

During the year there are a number of significant and special occasions where we come together as a whole College community to celebrate. These events include the Induction Mass, our Easter Liturgy, Catholic Education Week, Mass for the Poor, Feast of the Assumption and the Graduation Mass.

In our Religious Education classes students have the opportunity to engage in a more personalised prayer experience.Classes regularly start with a prayer and students are engaged in creating and guiding the prayer in class.

Due to our close relationship with the parish of St Michael and John’s, students participate in Year Level masses at the Church.                                                                     This connection to the parish reminds us that we are a part of a wider social community and a global Catholic Church.
