High School Pastoral Care
One of the great benefits your child receives by attending a Catholic high school is that chaplaincy services are available on site throughout the school year. Both our Chaplain and campus minister are here to serve the spiritual needs of students and staff.
School chaplain is a work of pastoral ministry carried out within the school community. Our chaplain and campus minister have been given the responsibility of providing spiritual care and supporting faith life for both students and staff. They spread the word of God and promote our Catholic teachings within the school setting.
Promoting Spiritual Development
Our chaplain and campus minister coordinate a wide range of activities that serve to promote the spiritual development of members of the school community. Some examples include:
- Preparing and leading prayer and Mass in the school
- Preparing for the observation and celebration of the special seasons and feasts that take place in our Church's liturgical year
- Maintaining a link with the school's local parish
- Overseeing the school's retreat programs
- Fostering an awareness of social justice and encouraging students to respond
Connection to your Child
The chaplain and campus minister will work to enhance your child's learning experience by focusing on religious morals, values and attitudes through work in and out of the classroom, during school liturgies and planned retreat experiences.
The chaplain and campus minister are also available for spiritual help and resource support. Students who experience loss due to a death, separation or divorce in their families or any other issue can find great comfort and support by turning to the school chaplain. By having a chaplain and campus minister as part of the high school resource team, we are able to focus on the spiritual development of all students.
