The Catholic life of The Cathedral Catholic Primary School is rich in opportunities for children to encounter God and to deepen their relationship with Him as a loving, compassionate Father. On this page we aim to share with you and celebrate many of the elements which make our Catholic school so special and unique.
At The Cathedral Catholic Primary School, we have such strong links with our Parish community. We are so lucky to have the Cathedral Church of St Peter church next to our school grounds. Father Stephen and Father John Paul are regular visitors in school. We are delighted that children join the Parish for Mass on a Sunday. Come along and join our celebrations. Mass begins at 10:30am every Sunday.

To mark the start of the Year of the Eucharist, Bishop Paul has made a broadcast message to introduce the start of this special year. All the children will be watching this and discussing what it means in class on the Feast of All Saints on Thursday, 1st November.

First Holy Communion and Reconciliation preparation
Sacramental Preparation for Reconciliation and Holy Communion usually takes place when the children are in Year 3 and is led by the catechists of The Parish of The Cathedral. Please contact the staff at Lancaster Cathedral if you would like further details about this.
The school has many members in the Cathedral Choristers - here you can see them warming up prior to the Easter Sunday Mass.
What a wonderful way in which to show our devotion to Our Lady. Each May, we join together as a whole school and with the Parish in unity to process from school to the Cathedral. We celebrate by sharing a short liturgy which was led by mothers and their children. The procession was led by the First Communicant children from last year.
Stations of the Cross
During Lent, the lunchtime prayer group lead each class in a reflective Station of the Cross. The children really understand the meaning of Holy Week through drama, song and prayer.
Children celebrate Palm Sunday with the Parish. Key Stage Two children read the part of the crowd and Key Stage One and Reception join in with Children's liturgy.
A representative from Aid to the Church in Need came to talk to the school about Red Wednesday, showing how they are helping people throughout the world who are persecuted because of their religious beliefs. We wore red to remember these people and to reach out to them with our love and prayers.
CAFOD Activities in Lent
During Lent this year, we will be doing lots of activities to raise money for the CAFOD - further details can be found here.
