Chaplaincy team

We are proud to introduce the Chaplaincy Team for 2023-2024. The children were blessed and welcomed into the service of our school in the Mercy Mass by Father Francis in September. They were also privileged to meet a previous Head teacher of St Adrian’s, Sr Margaret. Sr Margaret shared with the Chaplaincy Team the history of the Sisters of Mercy and what an honour it is to serve our school by helping others.

The Chaplaincy Team will be taking part in the masses and liturgies throughout the school year.

Thank you children for your dedicated service.

This year, the Chaplaincy Team have visited Feed, the Food Bank in St Albans to find out more about this charity. As a result of this visit, they helped to organise our Harvest Appeal and a great deal of items were collected to support families in need in St Albans.

On Sunday 5th February, Racial Justice Sunday will take place. The Chaplaincy Team led our assembly thinking about what it means to be fair and just and how we should treat everyone with kindness. We talked about us all being part of the human race and we are all united! We also sang a lovely song called ‘ Children United’

Some events which the Chaplaincy Team lead throughout the year:

Praying the Rosary for the Month of October

Leading a Harvest Assembly to encourage donations for the local food bank

Remernance Assembly for November

Advent Assemblies leading up to Christmas

Dressing of the Tree and the Advent Celebration Ceremony

Lenten assemblies

Stations of the Cross and Easter Assembly

Crowning of Mary Celebration

Praying to Mary in the Month of May

Throughout the year the children also lead Masses both in school and at St Bartholomew’s Church.

In the Summer term, we will aim to write a school prayer as well as lead assemblies about Catholic Social Teaching.
