2018-2019 Autumn 2018

 

Our first challenge was to introduce our school prayer bear to the children of our school.  We decided to place our bear in different parts of the school during break and lunch time.

     

 

In order to name our school prayer bear the Chaplaincy team have selected the following names: Chad, Thomas and Martin. The whole school will vote the preferred name.

 

Mary Club-October 2018

Some of the members of the Chaplaincy team will be leading activities celebrating our Mother Mary every Wednesday this month. Come and join us.

  

 

 

 

 

 

Summer Term 2018

As a celebration of new life after Jesus’ resurrection members of the Chaplaincy team planted flowers and watered the school’s potatoes, lettuce and spring onion.

December 2018

Before we began our role as Chaplaincy team, Fr. Bartholomew gave us a blessing in order to support and bless our journeys to promote our faith throughout the school.

Before we knew it, it was Advent and we were taking on our first duty to support the homeless through the Croydon Churches Floating Shelter. Children from St Chad’s were encouraged to donate items such as hats, scarves and toiletries to help the homeless over the cold months of December and January.

We encouraged and promoted this charitable event by making posters that were placed in classrooms. On Friday the 13th December we visited Holy Innocence Church, a local church who support the homeless, and gave our donations to Mother Roxanne.

    

Our next steps as Chaplains 

Over the next term we are planning

-to design a prayer area in the school

-lead Liturgies for the Holy Week

-plant flowers and vegetables to represent to new life  

 

Lent 2018

During this time of Lent we ask God for forgiveness and try to listen to his calling therefore we have been planning forgiveness activities that we will be inviting members of the school to participate in during the period of Lent.
