Our College chaplaincy group meets regularly in the chapel and is supported by our chaplaincy assistant. The work of the chaplaincy group represents our Christian values in action. The chaplaincy organises a wide range of activities including meditation, morning prayer, exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, rice lunches and other fund-raising activities for CAFOD, sandwich-making for the homeless and weekly creative workshops. The Blessed Sacrament is present through the week in the school chapel. It is a place of great peace and calm.
The work of the chaplaincy is supported by our Mission Team, a group of older students who were commissioned during Mission Week 2011 to offer a range of chaplaincy services, including peer counselling and Eucharistic ministry. This year a new group have responded to this challenge and will continue with these important roles.
Many of our students have completed the ‘Mega Youth Poll’ in their RE lessons or as part of their homework this week.
On Friday 31 March, we held a Mufti Day in response to CAFOD’s DEC emergency appeal.
In order to keep costs as low as possible, we are going to have to book train tickets next week for any year students who wish to go on our retreat to St Cassian’s, Kintbury on the 11-14th May.
