Foundation & Key Stage 1

“Liturgy celebrates, reveals and communicates the one vast divine blessing which is God’s work of salvation. It is the source and effective sign of the communion between God and human beings in Christ through the Holy Spirit. It is the continuation of the work of the Father in Christ and by the power of the Spirit, in, with and through the Church. The celebration of the gift of salvation takes shape in the seasons and feasts of the Church’s year. Liturgy involves the conscious, active and fruitful participation of everyone.”
