Welcome to the Chaplaincy

Chaplaincy Introduction

We are here to serve those of all faiths and none. Irrespective of your own faith background or tradition, Chaplaincy is at the heart of the College and exists for all staff, students and their families.

As a Catholic College, we believe we have a purpose to help everyone feel loved, and we believe that love comes from God. We have a beautiful chapel where students and staff can experience some quiet, reflective time.

Chaplaincy strives to support people with anything going on in their lives; the good stuff and the more difficult times, with situations at home, within college, with our friends or anything. Trained in counselling, our Lay Chaplain Carmel is here to provide a listening ear and emotional and spiritual support.

Chaplaincy supports various enrichment groups within the College. These include Christian Union, Global Justice and Peace, Community Ambassadors (SVP) and The India Project. We are a Catholic College for the whole community, and particularly through enrichment we are supporting our students in reaching out to local and global communities, helping all to “live life to the full” (John 10:10) which is at the heart of our College Mission.

Where?

The College’s Chapel is at the front of the building, next to the main entrance. Carmel’s office is in the middle of the ground corridor, between the canteen and the Senior Tutor Base.

Prayer

We are served by a team of local parish priests who celebrate Mass regularly and all staff, students and families are invited to join us.

Chaplaincy also offers lots of fun and exciting opportunities, check out the Chaplaincy page of the College website for more details on what we’ve been up to in the last academic year!
