The Christian ethos of our school is strongly enhanced through close links with our Parish in Richmond, St Joseph and St Francis Xavier. The Parish Priest is Canon Michael, our assistant priest is Father Richard, both are closely involved with the spiritual life of the school.
Canon Michael, Father Richard, staff and the Governors ensure that our children are actively involved in preparing for school Mass. The children help to prepare for the Welcome Mass at the beginning of the year and the Leaver’s Mass and End of Year Mass in the Summer term. These masses take place in the school hall or the Church. Additional Masses, such as morning mass with the Parishioners, seasonal feast days or other special occasions are also celebrated either in the church or school hall. Our children participate enthusiastically as servers, readers and offertory helpers; and their singing and reverence is a credit to themselves and their families.
