“The family is alive if it is united in prayer”.– Pope Francis
St. Anthony’s School is a community of families. We recognise that the school’s role within its community does not end at home time. Prayer is a way that home and school can unite as a Catholic community.
This section of our website is devoted to providing ideas and suggestions for family prayer at home.

Teaching your children prayers.
It is lovely to teach the children traditional prayers and at St. Anthony’s we teach the children different prayers at different stages of their school life.
Please find below a plan used by our staff for prayers said by the children in our different year groups. We begin in Nursery by teaching the children the Sign of the Cross and work through to Year 6 where children learn prayers like the Anima Christi.
We hope you find this useful.
