St Gregory’s Catholic School is looking for a driven and enthusiastic practising Catholic to join our flagship Chaplaincy Team as an Apprentice Chaplain with effect from 1st of January 2021.
The Role:
School chaplaincy has evolved from being a sacramentally defined ministry to one that is empowered by personal relationship. It is the everyday presence of the contemporary school chaplain that best serves to define the role - a “presence in pilgrimage”. In this sense, the “presence” of the chaplain has a triple aspect, which chaplains themselves have defined as:
• the physical presence of “being there for staff and students to come and share with”;
• the charismatic presence of being “a witness to the centrality of the spiritual in people’s lives”;
• the symbolic presence of being “a positive face of the Church” and in so being, encouraging staff and students to “deepen their relationship with God”
