As a Catholic community we take our responsibility to be of service to others very seriously. This term, the Angelus Group has challenged all tutor groups to fund raise in order to purchase a World Gift, as part of the Cafod campaign to provide resources to individuals and villages in the developing world. We are busy raising money to buy goats, donkeys and school starter packs amongst other things.
The Angelus Group, our chaplaincy team, has represented the school by preparing and participating in a Mass celebrated by the Bishop of Leeds at Carlton Towers and has taken part in a retreat to Ampleforth just this week. They regularly plan and deliver worship in school under the guidance of our Lay Chaplain, Sara Lambert.
Prayer To The Holy Family
Holy Family School Prayer
God you have made us your Holy Family,
with Christ, the Church and each other.
In Jesus may we learn the joy in forgiveness;
Mary the Mother of God let us find comfort through our love of others;
May the example of Joseph help us grow as we serve.
Make our family an instrument of your peace, guided by your wisdom and strengthened by your grace.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord
Together we step out in faith, knowing that Christ is with us and united as a holy family.
We commit to ensure that each child realises their full potential, growing in wisdom and grace.
Holy Family Catholic High School places Christ at the heart of everything we do and openly gives witness to the Catholic values of love, compassion, forgiveness and reconciliation in our daily work.
