“Dear young people, let us not be satisfied with a mediocre life. Be amazed by what is true and beautiful, what is of God!” – Pope Francis
My name is Dan and I am the Lay Chaplain to the school. The Chaplaincy is also supported by a number of staff and pupils from across the school.
What is Chaplaincy?
Perhaps Chaplaincy can best be explained through our mission statement – Growing Together in the Spirit of Christ’s Love. We believe that school is a holy place because Christ is at the heart of all we do and are and strive for at All Hallows.
We aim to serve all the members of our school community by offering encouragement, support and friendship. We help to create and nurture the Christian Ethos of the school through the Celebration of the Eucharist, Liturgy and Prayer, the school retreat programme, parish links, spiritual direction, justice and peace issues and the youth .S.V.P community group. It is also to be found in the very ordinary, day to day running of the school by our witness and awareness of the Christian values of truth, compassion and love. Ethos is not an easy thing to describe but it can be felt and seen throughout the school.
