The Chaplaincy is...
The mutual support we give to each other as we sincerely try to be a living Catholic Christian Community.
The presence of faith in our college in our values, words, deeds and worship
How we work together for the Common Good
The welcome we give to our visitors and the care we give to one another
Our aim is to be a Church college where matters of faith, service, worship and Christian values are at the heart of everything we do.
The aims and values of Chaplaincy are expressed in our motto, mission statement and values. The college Latin motto is ‘Christi Crux Est Mea Lux’ meaning ‘Christ crucified is my light’. We aim to help each other reflect on how Jesus’ death on a cross, and his resurrection sheds light on our lives. Our mission statement, ‘Aspire not to have more but to be more’, is a reminder that it is who we become that really matters. The five values of Honourable Purpose, Respect, Compassion, Co-operation and Stewardship are taken from the example of Jesus in the Gospels, and from the teachings of the Church.
Community Mass in Term Time: Friday 9.00am
The Chapel of All Hallows’ is a dedicated space for prayer, for the celebration of Mass and other Liturgies. Friday Mass is linked to St Alban’s and St Gregory's Parishes and we are pleased to have parishioners join our staff and students. Parents are very welcome to join us for this Mass. The Blessed Sacrament is reserved in the Tabernacle to assist our prayer. Local parishioners work with the RE team to help students learn about and pray the Stations of the Cross (Lent) and the Rosary (May). Staff and student prayer groups meet in the chapel.
