We are a Catholic School
We welcome families of all faiths to join us
Our Mission Statement is a clear reflection of our intentions as a school:
St. Catherine's mission is to educate children
in the virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity.
With Christ as our Teacher, we grow in Faith as
enthusiastic learners in a safe and supportive family.
We are privileged to share with our pupils, the awe and wonder they experience as they learn through the scriptures and apply the lessons to their own lives; safe in the knowledge that God is a kind and loving Father.
Our Parish Priest, Fr John Winstanley, visits us every week in school and regularly shares Mass and Services with our classes.
Fr. John had a beautiful outdoor crib placed in the Church Garden and our school was invited to join the Parish for a Blessing.
It was a bitterly cold afternoon, but the children sang Love Shone Down beautifully and read Bidding Prayers.
We are very excited for home time because the crib will be all lit up!
Holy Week 2021
We held a beautiful service in the Church gardens with Fr John. The sun shone down on us and we really enjoyed listening to the readings and singing our songs as we shared the stories of Holy Week.
Thank you to Fr. John for leading our assembly today in Church. Fr. John had arranged for the statue, Our Lady of Walsingham, from St. Edmund's Parish in Carlisle, to be brought to St. Catherine's Church. Fr. John told us about the Re-Dedication of England to Mary on 29th March 2020. We held a short prayer service and thought carefully about what we would like to ask Our Lady to help us with.
