Religious life at School

 

Franciscan Tradition

Gospel values are at the heart of everyday life at St Agnes as we follow the 800 year Franciscan tradition. We have daily rituals combining words, actions and symbols, which make meaning of the mystery of life and of the Gospels.

Prayer & Liturgy

At St Agnes Catholic High School we have many different celebrations of liturgy as we support the faith journey of our students.

Sacraments and Prayer Life

Prayer is an integral part of who we are. At St Agnes we embrace our Catholic heritage in many different ways. During homeroom prayer we recite traditional Catholic prayers with special intentions. At the end of the day we have a brief whole school prayer where we ask St Agnes and St Francis to pray for us at the end of the devotion. The Rosary is prayed by both staff and students, weekly in the library. The sacrament of Penance is offered by Father Renato Paras, Parish Priest of St Aidan’s Parish, on a regular basis.

Liturgies

There are a variety of ways we celebrate Mass throughout the liturgical calendar.  These include:

  • Opening School Mass (where our Year 10 leaders are commissioned)
  • Year 7 Welcome Mass (where new students and their families are welcomed)
  • Year 7 Camp Liturgy
  • Reflection Day Liturgies
  • Ash Wednesday Liturgy
  • Stations of the Cross
  • Easter Liturgy
  • Pentecost paraliturgy
  • St Agnes Day Mass
  • Year 10 Graduation Mass. 

Depending on the prayer focus, liturgies can involve the whole school, Stage 4 or 5, year groups or classes. Liturgies are always student-focused, meaning the students are heavily involved in all aspects of the celebration. 

Wherever possible, students are encouraged to display their gifts and talents prayerfully. Music, liturgical dance and drama are a few ways students express their faith during liturgies. Given that we are blessed with students from diverse cultural backgrounds, our liturgies are always significant and special celebrations. 

We also participate in liturgies with our wider parish communities.
