Chaplaincy Team

Pupil Chaplaincy Team


Our Chaplaincy team is responsible for helping our school grow as a community of faith. The team aims to ensure that Christ is at the centre of the school as well as encouraging all pupils to develop and share their faith through prayer, liturgy and worship. They do this by presenting and explaining the Wednesday Word to all classes in the school each week, assisting Mr. Doherty in the delivery of our weekly Gospel assembly and ensuring our school and classroom environments have a reflective and engaging prayer space in which we can feel God's presence each day. 


"And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him"- Colossians 3:17

Chaplaincy Team training 2022

Our new Chaplaincy Team attended training with Sister Judith in St Joseph's Catholic Primary School to inspire and empower them in sharing the word of God throughout our school and communities this year. They planned an introductory assembly to establish themselves in the school and developed an action plan for the year.
