When your child accepts a place at Saint Paul’s Catholic High School, you and your family become part of a very special community; which has Christ at its centre. The Chaplaincy is here to enrich this community by ensuring the core gospel values of love, compassion, stewardship, respect and service are at the centre of all our relationships and activities.
The Chaplaincy team are always praying for our whole school community, through the tough times and the ordinary of everyday life. We endeavour to lead by example, equipping everyone to bring prayer into our forms, classrooms, assemblies, sports fixtures and beyond, confident that God hears and answers all our prayers.
We see it as vitally important that students get the opportunity to encounter faith and prayer from a different perspective through a retreat experience. For instance, in Year 7 every form has a day retreat exploring the theme ‘belonging to a community’ and Year 8 go away on a residential retreat to Savio House, a nearby youth retreat centre.
Young people interested in being Confirmed (from Year 7 – 11) are invited to join the Youth Group EXITE, which meets at Sacred Heart.
