The School Chaplain
The school is very fortunate to be served by a very supportive chaplain:
Rev. Gerry McNelis
The role of the chaplain is to support Religious Education within the school. This is done by visiting classes, supporting teachers and by being present around the school.
Mass is celebrated in the school at 12.50pm on Tuesdays and this celebration is prepared by a different class each week. The Sacrament of Reconciliation can be available to the pupils at any time, however efforts are made during important times namely Advent and Lent of the Church’s year to ensure that opportunities are available to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation at set times for each year group.
The department assisted by the chaplain also organises visits to the school by member of Religious Communities to speak to pupils about issues that affect their daily lives.
