Co-Created Prayer

Engaging students in the Religious life of your school

Co-created Prayer is designed to animate the religious life of your school. This model of praying together involves inviting students to join one of five groups - Sacred Space, Sacred Word, Sacred Understanding, Sacred Prayers and Sacred Music - who share the responsibility for creating and leading prayer together. Through inquiry, student voice and agency is enhanced, supporting "fully conscious and active participation in liturgical celebrations" (Sacrosanctum Concilium, 14).

Co-created Prayer provides ways to support learners and participants with different strengths and develops collaboration skills (connecting with the general capabilities within the Australian Curriculum). The model has been used successfully with students from 5-6 years of age to adults.
