Catholic Life - Chaplaincy Teams



Children’s chaplaincy team children’s chaplaincy team act as role models who promote the Catholic life of our school. In the summer term children in years 2-5 can apply to become members of the children’s chaplaincy team. They complete an application form and then, if shortlisted, attend an interview to become a member. There are representatives from each class in KS2 on our children’s chaplaincy team.


The Children’s chaplaincy team play a key role in the prayer life of our school, by attending the Dunstable Schools Mass in the Autumn term and helping out at key events throughout the school year, such as during masses or religious celebrations. They also help out at the weekly lunch time prayer zone and Stations of the Cross during Lent.


One of the most important jobs the children do deciding which charity we should help. They have regular meetings to discuss which charities we could support and how we could fundraise. current (2016-2017) children’s chaplaincy members are:
