Parish Mass and School Collective Worship
Collective worship is at the heart of our role as a Catholic School. Our coming together to worship and pray is that golden moment in each day when we are drawn together, enabling the spiritual development of each child and providing opportunities to develop a personal relationship with God.

Links with School
The pupils in all years attend a Whole School Parish Mass at the start and end of each term. Father Prem gives the pupils in Years 3 to 6 the opportunity to receive the sacrament of reconciliation every term. All term time Holy days and school celebrations, including Harvest Mass and the Feast of St Thomas More, are also celebrated in Church by the whole school. The parishioners are also invited to attend Mass in class every Thursday. The school works closely with the catechists involved with the preparation of children for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation.
Go north along the A4260 through Kidlington. Turn into the service road that runs parallel to this road and keep going north. The church is situated at the end of this service road at the junction with Bicester Road.
