Chaplains

What is a School Chaplain

A chaplain is a theologically and pastorally trained person who helps develop, strengthen and nurture the faith of the members of a school community.

School chaplaincy is a pastoral role carried out in a education setting in a collaborative manner in order to promote the spiritual and human development of the members of the Catholic school community. Chaplaincy is a ministry of the Church, and as such requires a mandate from the diocesan Bishop.

In the schools, the chaplain works with the principal and is accountable to the Bishop. In his works he is guided by the p0licies and decisions of the Board of Governors and the School Management Team.

Who carries out this ministry?

Today the role of a chaplain is not reserved exclusively for priests. School communities are being served by persons, be they clergy, religious, laity, women or men who have been recognised as having a specific ministry with the faith community of the school to facilitate opportunities to grow in Christ.

The central role of the chaplain is to provide evangelisation for the school community and support the faith life of its members.
