Father Kieren and Miss Molloy interviewed and appointed 15, new Year 5 GIFT Chaplaincy Team members on 12th July 2023. They will be commissioned after our first school celebration Mass on 15th September. They join the 15 Year 6 GIFT Chaplains, who have already undertaken their roles for a year. The team are led by Mrs Hollins and Mrs Ramsbottom.
Father Kieren annually explains how important it is for each of them in their GIFT Chaplaincy role to tell all in the community that they are wonderfully made by God. Everyone is wonderful, just as God's works are wonderful.
The GIFT Chaplaincy Team have many plans for the academic year. Children will lead celebrations for Our Lady's Birthday on 8th September. They will look at gifts they could give Mary to improve our world and support the vulnerable and isolated, as well as looking after 'Our Common Home'.
The team are always excited to visit people in the community, they enjoy listening to their stories and sharing laughter.
Our weekly coffee mornings have recommenced again, each Thursday, after the 9.30am Mass celebration.
The team work closely with the Parish Sacramental Team, supporting families during this very important year. The GIFT Pupil Chaplaincy Team will help the Year 3 children during their Sacramental Journey. They will use their own experiences to teach the class about their Faith.
The GIFT Chaplaincy Team School Development Plan 2023-2024 highlights all their plans for this academic year.
