Chaplaincy Team (Prayer leaders)
The Chaplaincy Team is designed to give the children more ownership and understanding of this central aspect of their faith. Our group of pupil volunteers work with the staff to prepare for, plan and celebrate school liturgies.
They lead Morning Prayer in each class once a week and take responsibility for reading the gospel and prayers of intercession during the Monday Gospel Liturgy as well distribute and present the Wednesday Word to each class. They monitor prayer tables in classrooms and the prayer areas around school.
Children in UKS2 are given the opportunity to join our newly developing Mini Vinnies groups. The children have time to examine issues of social justice as primary age members of the Society of St Vincent de Paul. Children who take part in this group are becoming "Vincentians for LIfe" and developing their active faith through good deeds and prayer.
The chaplaincy team were honoured to represent our school at St
George’s Cathedral for the ‘Beginning of school year school mass’ for
all the Catholic schools in Merton.
