"In Chaplaincy, we have been working towards bringing Gods voice to every student and providing an environment for faith to flourish."
‘Here I am Lord’- 1 Samuel 3:4
Chaplaincy is a bespoke concept at Bishop Challoner Catholic College that permeates every aspect of our Spiritual Life. We consider each and every one of our members of the community to be disciples, devoted to living God’s word.
We aim to offer a variety of opportunities for everyone to be able to be involved in living our faith.
As you journey through the Chaplaincy sections of our school website we encourage you to continue to find new ways and old favourites to ground in faith.
Bishop Challoner has been supporting Solidarity, Simple and Sustainably with St. Dunstan’s parish and primary, St Alban’s and St. Jude’s. As a part of this our Eco-Warriors have been considering more sustainable options for our community. We are supporting Fair Trade and sharing in a variety of options that can be done in school and at home. The initiative we are currently embarking on is to see, reflect and act to fully live out the scripture and papal writings in our day to day life.
Chaplaincy Champion Team Meetings
Our chaplaincy champion team meets throughout each term. These are interactive sessions for our chaplaincy champions to have a time of formation and collaborative discussions in the chapel.
Notable dates/Feast Days
In Chaplaincy, we celebrate and mark all notable dates in the Liturgical Calendar by pausing for prayer and reflection as a school community. Resources for the pause for prayer are on the school sway page and emailed to students. In the chapel, we mark these days by having a prayerful activity on that day in the chapel for all to observe the significant day in the churches calendar.
Mass in the Chapel
Father Kurapati joins us each week for a class mass in the chapel. Together to give our intentions in solidarity with the Catholic Church and invite our pupils to lead in their celebration of the Lord.
