Great Crosby Catholic Primary aims to make the school a place where the Gospel values of our Lord Jesus Christ are taught, lived and experienced, where prayer and celebrations are integral to life and where religious growth and development are stimulated within the total curriculum to which all can contribute and from which all can gain.

Holy Week was different this year as we were not able to come to school. We provided families with a wide range of Holy Week resources: readings from God’s Story, prayers, reflections, videos of Palm Sunday, a message from Fr John and his own Stations of the Cross, songs by John Burland, Rend Collective and Tim Hughes, craft activities and links to CAFOD, Mission Together, The Bible Society, Wintershall, The Pastoral Center and Easter In Another Place.
CAFOD's home learning page has downloadable Laudato Si packs as well as games, films, prayers and activities for children.
CAFOD have set up a virtual children's liturgy which is shown live every Sunday at 10am and is available to catch-up as well. This is a super resource while we cannot gather together in person due to coronavirus, we can still come together as a community through prayer. Click on the green button for details on how to sign up.
CAFOD have a new fundraising appeal to join in with called Summer of Hope. The aim is to ensure clean water and food reaches some of the poorest families in the world during this global emergency.

Mission Together (Missio) is one of the charities that we support in school. They have produced Holy Week packs and activity sheets which include simple tasks, questions, prayers and adapted scriptures. They’ll help children learn, reflect, and stand in solidarity with children around the world already living in hardship. At times like this, we encourage children to remember that we are all part of God’s family.
