Catholic Life at Holy Cross
Welcome to the Catholic Life part of our website.
Catholic Life is all about the things that make our school so special. This section will show you how our pupils live out the Gospel message of spreading ‘Good News’. It will demonstrate how we live out God’s teachings in our school through our collective worship, charitable works and working with our parish and local community.
The Come and See newsletters are available here so that you can see and share what our children will be covering during each term.
A very important part of the Catholic Life of the school is our chaplaincy team. They lead collective worship in all of our classes based upon a weekly statement to live by. Each week they encourage children to ‘Go Forth’ and live out the statement. All of the statements make the living out of Catholic values explicit.
We are fortunate to have Father Cahill close by and he is no stranger to our children. He celebrates mass with us in church and in school. Classes take it in turns to lead mass at the beginning of each term and on feast days and holy days.
Carols by Candlelight raised over £400 for Leicestershire charity Menphys.
