Father David John will commission our ten newly appointed Year 5 GIFT Chaplaincy Team members during the first Mass of the academic year on 7th September 2017. They had previously been selected for the role after an interview with Father David John, Mrs Donohue and Miss Molloy. During the interview each applicant was asked challenging questions.

The GIFT Chaplaincy Team are extremely busy during the Autumn Term. The children will lead celebration for Our Lady's Birthday on 8th September. They are preparing to take food parcels to residents in the local community after our Harvest Festival in October. Later this term they will deliver donations of clothing and bedding to Wood Street Mission and take shoe boxes to a local collection point. They will lead the Remembrance and War Memorial Services in November.

They are implementing the Chaplaincy Development Plan 2017-2018. A weekly coffee morning is held each alternate Tuesday in Father David's House after 9.30am Mass. These sessions have commenced since September 2015. We warmly invite all families and parishioners to attend these informal 'get togethers'. Participants have the opportunity to make many friends and join with the wider community.

During 2017-2018 Mrs Donohue 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.

The GIFT Chaplaincy Team have this link on our website. The site is updated with a weekly reflection, events and prayer intentions. The team report back regularly to the whole school in the Friday afternoon Good Work Assembly.
