School GIFT Chaplaincy Team 2020-2021

Father Kieren and Miss Molloy interviewed and appointed 13 new Year 5 GIFT Chaplaincy Team on 14th October. They will join the 11 Year 6 GIFT Chaplains.

Father Kieren explained 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 Autumn Term. Children have already led celebrations for Our Lady's Birthday on 8th September and Our Lady of the Rosary's Feast Day on 7th October.  Fr Kieren joined the class bubble prayer services on both days and spoke about how Mary brings us all closer to Jesus.  Pupils have been praying the rosary at home, with family members during October. GIFT Chaplains will lead the Harvest Festival and All Saints/All Souls and War Remembrance Services in November.  Each service will be recorded and shared with families. Children will write to and telephone lonely and isolated people in the community, listening to their stories and sharing laughter.  They hope to creatively connect with many homes in the local area in 2020-2021.

They are implementing the Chaplaincy Development Plan 2020-2021. A remote weekly coffee morning will be held each alternate Tuesday after 9.30am Mass. 

The team will 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.
