The school chaplaincy team meet every week for prayer, discussion and reflection.
This is a time for some quiet, some thinking, some talking, some fun and always lots of doing. All children are welcome to come and join us to talk.
The chaplaincy team at St Mary’s is an integral part of the school and parish family, committed to the beliefs and values of the Gospels, working side by side on a journey of faith.
As a Christian family we acknowledge that each individual is made in God’s image and loved by Him. All family members are valued and respected as individuals so that they can be supported to fulfil their unique role in creation.
Our Chaplaincy Mission:
- to serve the personal and spiritual needs of our family members
- to promote the importance of positive relationships within a spirit of honesty, support and love
“In working with young people do not call them back to where they were and do not call them to where you are, beautiful as that place may seem to you, you must have the courage to go with them to a place neither you nor they may have been before”
Fr V.J. Donovan ‘Christianity Discovered’
