Our Chaplains have a very important role at St. Sebastian’s. They have been invited by the Diocese to spread God’s word throughout our school and to lead by example. Their role will include delivering assemblies for the rest of the school community, supporting classes in their liturgies as well as reminding children about our bigger mission as a Catholic school. Our chaplains have already started on their new mission surrounding the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. This a brilliant opportunity for them to make a difference and raise awareness in our community.
Our chaplains have been very busy over the term, they have made box prayers which has encouraged the children to think about how blessed they are to have a home. They have also written prayers for those who do not have a home.
During lunchtime they also made mirror prayers with the children. They taught the children that they are all made in the image of God. The children were asked to look at themselves and talk about the things they like. They also talked about how they might look like someone in their family.
They also wrote their names on hands to show that we are all in God's hands and how He looks after us all.
The chaplains have also made dinner plate prayers. The children made 4 different prayers in one place to show how we can pray to God for different things; help, forgiveness, thanks and awe.
Take a look at our photos to see how busy we have been!
