Our Chaplaincy Team is a welcoming and vibrant team that is open to all students from all year groups. You do not have to be a Catholic to join, it is open to any person of any faith. All we require is a burning desire in the student’s heart to help the school community, those within in, and all those who are in our wider communities.
The Chaplaincy Team is split up into four groups: Prayer, Publicity, Fundraising and Spiritual Coordinators.
PRAYER: In the PRAYER group of the Chaplaincy Team, it is your job to make sure that all aspects of the prayer life of the school are ready and sorted each week. Acts of Worship are planned properly and set up, Mass is organised and ready, and that form time prayer is taking place in a respectful manner. This is also means taking an active part in prayer and having the confidence to lead prayer throughout the school.
PUBLICITY: In the PUBLICITY group of the Chaplaincy Team, it is your job to make us public around the school! This means that you need to make sure notice boards around the school are up to date, the Chapel is clean and tidy, Chaplaincy notices are announced in form time and that you are an example to all others around the school by behaving, smiling and most of all … BEING YOU!
FUNDRAISING: In the FUNDRAISING group of the Chaplaincy Team, it is your job to make sure we raise some money! You are responsible to come up with ideas of how we can raise funds, advertise them, set them up and raise some money for various charities. You need to be creative and also prepared to work hard in order to raise money.
SPIRITUAL COORDINATORS: This group is only for the Sixth Form as part of their leadership programme. They are proactive members of our Sixth Form that make the bridge between Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 more accessible and achievable through a caring and supporting network. They take on responsibility by leading groups within the Chaplaincy Team and showing them how our faith can help us succeed through school life. They are key members of our school community.
The Chaplaincy Team badge was designed by one of the first members of the Chaplaincy Team in 2013, there is a cross at the centre as a reminder to keep Christ at the centre of what we do, the shield is for courage as we must be strong in our faith, and the circle is a reminder that all are welcome in our community.
