Praying at home during the Coronavirus


Welcome to our ‘Praying at Home’.

 An unexpected kind of Lent


This is a time for us all to pray more for each other and especially for those who are ill at home or in hospital.

We should pray also for those key workers, especially doctors, nurses and medical staff, teachers and other carers, including clergy, that the Lord will protect them as they place their own well being at risk in the service of all.


These prayers and ideas are help those of us who are struggling to find words at this difficult and stressful time, and to enable us, to worship together with each other when we can't gather together in church.


This section of our school website will provide prayers for home from the Gospel for our families to pray together and weekly ‘Sunday Liturgy for Families’ for an opportunity for families to lead their own Sunday liturgy following the order of the Mass..


For our parents, our Hexham and Newcastle Diocese website has links to live streams of Masses.

You can listen to Bishop Robert's Homily recorded at the Cathedral Church of St. Mary's on Friday 20 March 2020. Bishop Robert shares his thoughts and prayers on the challenges faced in the light of Coronavirus.


For our children, CAFOD are intending to deliver a ‘Virtual children's liturgy’ which will comprise of live sessions every Sunday. Please check the website below later this week for the link to register if you would like to prayer together with other families. There are also weekly Lent activity sheets that you can download and work through with your children.
