Catholic Life Of The School
The Catholic ethos is at the heart of our school community and everything that we do at All Saints Catholic College is celebrated with reverence and respect.
Each school day begins with an opportunity for prayer and quiet reflection. Assemblies, staff briefings and staff meetings as well as Religious Education lessons all include an act of worship, reflection or a form of meditation that is led by students and staff.
Our morning worship and whole school Masses reflect the liturgical seasons of the Church and provide us with a valuable opportunity to celebrate as an ecclesial community. We value our links with our local parishes and support our students in their celebration of the sacraments.
Each year group has an opportunity to attend an annual retreat with a specific focus related to the needs of the year group. The retreats provide an invaluable experience for spiritual reflection and personal growth. The invitation to attend individual confession after penitential services is well received by our students who respond with a sincere openness to the celebration of this sacrament of reconciliation.
All Saints is a naturally caring community and provides pastoral support to students and families who are facing difficult and stressful situations such as bereavement, unemployment and poverty to name but a few. As a Catholic community, we take our commitment to the teaching of the Church on Social Justice and Peace as an essential part of all we do. We encourage our students to live out the Gospel values of “Love your neighbour“ through the support of CAFOD , the work of the Missionaries Sisters, as well as the outreach work such as our annual Christmas Dinner for the elderly in our community.
We offer a weekly club, 'The Catholic Radio Club' led by our Chaplain Mr Sunny which takes place every Monday between 3pm and 4pm in the chapel.
Our podcast, 'SAINTSCAST' be be found on Spotify.
‘SAINTSCAST’ is a platform that works to serve the school community and the wider world; bringing God’s message of saving love to the current generation, affected by the social issues. “Each of us are called to be the stewards of the mysteries of God,” (1 Cor 4:1) and “each of us regardless have received a gift, serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace,” regardless of faith, background and identity.
