Catholic Life at St Mary's/Bywyd Catholig yn Ysgol Santes Fair
St Mary's school, is an important part of the parish of St Mary's which serves the town of Carmarthen and surrounding areas.
Pupils attend Mass once every three weeks with their class, and once a month as a whole class. We also work with Parish to hold regular Family Mass celebrations on a Sunday.
Pupils have the opportunity to take an active part in Masses they attend, including:
- reading the Old and New testament readings, the responsorial psalm, as well as the bidding prayers, which are often compose by the chilren themselves.
- taking up the offertory
- helping to choose hymns to be sung
- learning how to serve at the altar (usually in Years 5 and 6)
The school also takes the First Holy Communion classes for all children in the Parish, which children are able to attend in Year 3 and above.
