The Well

St Joseph’s is privileged to have a spiritual room set apart for class liturgies, prayer and reflection.  Within ‘The Well’ we build upon the spiritual life of the school and are conscious of the spiritual needs of both staff and pupils and endeavour to make Christ present for everyone.  ‘The Well’ as a sacred space is used by children from our Crèche, Pre-school and all year groups.  Once a month, staff have a short Reflection and Prayer Service which enables them to build upon their own prayer life.

The atmosphere within ‘The Well’ is of a sacred space, with sacred music playing softly and it is in this atmosphere that the children come to learn about our Catholic faith, the Liturgical Year of the Church, God’s Word and the people of God.  They listen to stories about Jesus’ life, His ministry and His teachings, they explore and discuss stories about His miracles, and of the greatest commandment he left us with, ‘Love one another as I have loved you’.
