A Whole School Chaplaincy Model

St. Mary's adopts a whole school chaplaincy model where every child in school is invited to be a chaplain. Each child plays a vital role in enhancing the values of our Catholic faith in Jesus with Mary's help and guided by the Holy Spirit.  All children take joy in planning, participating and leading Prayer and Liturgy throughout the year, as well as taking part in Liturgical Celebrations and reaching out to our local, national and wider communities.

Our School Chaplain is Mrs Fernandes


The roles of a chaplain include...

  • Helping the school to be a community of faith.
  • Encouraging others to live their faith in daily living.
  • Developing good relationships within and beyond the school community.
  • Supporting Liturgy, prayer and the spiritual life of the school.
  • Becoming involved in fundraising for charities.
  • Continuing to develop strong links with the Parish and community.
  • Supporting the school in its Vision and Mission Statement.

Duties include...
