At St Vincent's we have a lay chaplain who is part of a central team is based in St Mary’s College where all planning and preparation is undertaken collectively.
An experienced and committed chaplaincy coordinator spends one day each week in each school, spending time with individuals, groups, classes and whole-school. Singing, using a variety of artefacts, modelling and helping pupils in planning and preparing their class Collective Worship, Godly Play and rosary club are all included in the many activities which the chaplaincy leader uses to inspire and teach the pupils.
Chaplains fill a pivotal role in the life of our school by ensuring that the Chaplaincy mission is at the heart of everything we do.
They encourage our students to explore their faith by leading liturgies, extra curricular activities including prayer groups and the Mini Vinnies (SVP) group.
They also support the pastoral care of our students and liaise with our family of schools and parishes.
