St Mary’s combines with four local primary schools for our virtual Lenten Liturgy
Following the great success of our virtual Christmas Liturgy, St Mary’s worked with four local primary schools in the production of a virtual Lenten Liturgy which has been viewed over three hundred times, as well as being the basis for end of term assemblies. Using the educational resources of the Catholic charity Missio, the liturgy focused on the fourteen Stations of The Cross, along with two Easter appropriate hymns - Christ be our Light and Lord of the Dance.
Students from the following schools read the various Stations of the Cross: St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, Croydon; The Minster Junior School, Croydon; St Johns Church of England Primary School, Croydon; St Thomas of Canterbury Catholic Primary School, Mitcham; and St Mary’s Catholic High School.
In addition, St Johns Church of England Primary School and St Thomas of Canterbury Catholic Primary School provided the superb musical accompaniment.
Many thanks to the headteachers and staff from all five schools that agreed to take part in the liturgy and undertook the filming at the end of a busy term.
