9th Nov 2017
On Thursday 9th November, we had a Whole School Mass and, during it, Father Paul gave all the student chaplains a special blessing to initiate the children into chaplaincy.
At the start of the Mass we were given a sheet of paper which had our responses and the special prayer on it.
After the Homily, Father Paul called us up and gave us the special blessing and a Student Chaplain sash to wear when we are present in our meetings. During the special blessing, we had to read our responses and our prayer out loud.
This special blessing gives us the courage to spread the Word of God and share our inner thoughts and feelings with other students. We will now be leading assemblies at school to share what has happened during the previous Sunday’s Mass and helping to teach the students how to strengthen their faith.
