growing & learning
together with Christ"
The Catholic ethos of St. Mary's, Wednesbury is something very special - something almost tangible which people comment on after visiting our school.
Our foundation rests firmly on the Gospel values, and we endeavour always to live out those values in the way we welcome and support one another.
We have a very close and special relationship with our Parish and our local community and enjoy supporting each other in many different ways.
We lead a monthly Family Parish Mass.
We hold R.E. themed workshops with parents.
Our pupils enjoy being active in the parish as Altar Servers.
We have a programme of assemblies that are led by pupils, classes and external visitors.
In our classes we enjoy daily Collective Worship. We share our faith journey with one another.
Each week we listen to “Wednesday Word” and reflect on the Gospel for the forthcoming Sunday Mass. We discuss how it can be lived in our lives. This is led by all of our teachers in turn.
We participate in weekly Parish masses.
Father Paul visits our classrooms. We invite him in to help with our R.E. lessons from time to time and with the questions we have about our faith.
We enjoy sharing our talents – singing as a choir in the locality at Christmas time, e.g. nursing homes or supermarkets.
We extend our sacramental programme to children outside of the school but in our parish working closely with Father Paul.
