Prayer Leaders

God wants me to be the best me I can be as a 


Prayer Leader

Our Prayer Leaders lead prayer and worship across the school. They attend training in the diocese and lead prayer in assembly. Prayer leaders also visit each class to encourage the children to develop their faith.  They are identified through their Prayer Leader Sweaters.



At St Joseph's our Prayer Leaders choose which charities we support each year. Parents and children have supported Macmillan Coffee Mornings as well as collections for foodbanks and the NSPCC.  


Macmillan Cancer 


On Friday 24th September we held a Macmillan Coffee Morning. It was a huge success and we raised over £145. Thank you to everyone who donated and made cakes. Also thank you to everyone who attended. It was a lovely morning.
