As a Catholic College collective worship plays a fundamental part of daily school life and enables us all to join together as one in prayer and worship.
The school is part of the Catholic Church’s international family of schools. Religious education in the school is in accordance with the teachings of the Catholic Church; and religious worship is in accordance with its rites and practices. At all times the school serves as a witness to the Catholic faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that St Richard Reynolds Catholic College is special because of the sense of community, and the relationships between teachers and students. Being part of this team engenders respect and a love of teaching and learning, celebrating each individual for their talents and becoming the person God has created us to be.
We achieve this by ensuring students engage with their faith daily, through a combination of form worship, assemblies and whole College masses, as well as liturgies, adoration and reconciliation at key liturgical times of the year. Mass is celebrated every Friday morning in the College, with each form group as the intention group having the opportunity to deepen their faith and reflect on their lives both inside and outside school.
Another key part of College life is putting students’ and teachers’ faith into action through Service and the Common Good; whether this is through the house system and fund-raising, student leadership with our Liturgy reps or links with our Parish communities.
The timetable of Worship is as follows:
- Weds - Years 9 and 10
- Thurs - Years 7 and 8
- Fri - Year 11 and 12
Voluntary Mass is celebrated every Friday at 8am in the Chapel.
