The Chaplaincy is an integral part of school life, serving pupils and staff of all faiths and none. The Chaplaincy promotes the belief that all are made in the image and likeness of God, aims to foster a sense of responsibility for oneself and others and encourages a deepening and maturing of faith so as to equip our pupils to face with faith the challenges and joys of life. Underpinning all aspects of the Chaplaincy programme is the provision of good Pastoral Care, this includes supporting individuals coping with the stresses of daily life and those faced with particular challenges.
Our model of Chaplaincy has been specifically developed to meet the needs of pupils and staff at Bishop Challoner School.
The Chaplaincy is supported by Chaplaincy prefects, Trustees, staff and pupils. Many pupils are trained as altar servers and also help with readings and prayers during Mass. At its best, school Chaplaincy is collaborative and involves the whole community of staff and pupils. We would therefore like to invite you to be involved in the Chaplaincy and also to suggest ideas for new developments. We welcome all faiths.
