Chaplaincy Team at the Commissioning

During the Commissioning of new Chaplaincy members Zuzanna and Nina read the reading of the day. They read with beautiful clarity. We are very proud of them!

On Thursday the 12th October, the Chaplaincy Team travelled to Bristol to attend the commissioning at the Cathedral. This is a special occasion as the new members are commissioned by Bishop Declan. The new members renewed their baptismal promises and joined Bishop Declan in the Act of Dedication. It was a lovely morning. We were even able to meet other Chaplaincy Teams from across our diocese. 


Lewie reflected, 'I really enjoyed the trip. I walked our school banner around the cathedral with Alfie and then sang some hymns and got my badge. I felt proud and special.'


Alfie added, ' I enjoyed the commissioning for chaplaincy team because I liked it when we met Bishop Declan and when we got our badges. I felt nervous because there were so many people but I felt happy overall.'

Commissioning Mass with the Little Way Partnership

On Friday the 4th November, our Chaplaincy Team met with the new members of the Little Way Partnership Chaplaincy Teams at St Peter's Catholic Primary School. It was here that we had a special service where we were commissioned. We made promises and received our badges, which we will wear with pride. After the service, we had a chance to play games and meet the other children. We had a great time and can't wait to meet up again later in the year!

Chaplaincy Team Promise

As a Chaplaincy Team we all created a promise and signed it with our fingerrprint to show that  we will keep to the promise in all that we do. 

Fratelli Tutti

The Year 6 Chaplaincy members thought about the message of Fratelli Tutti. They created a symbol to represent what they felt was important.

Chaplaincy Team completing a Reflective Area Learning Walk

We went to St Peter's High School to meet with other Chaplaincy Teams. While we were there, we particpated in three different workshops: nature walk, art and a boardgame. The focus of each of these activities was the care for our common home - the World. We came together as a family and wrote prayers and promises reflecting on God's creation. We are like sunflowers that follow the sun - we follow Jesus.
