Junior Chaplaincy – “Helping children meet God”

Our mission as members of the Junior Chaplaincy is to help the children in all classes meet God in liturgies, prayer, people and action.

So far this year …

We welcomed our new pupils and staff in September and talked about the role of Junior Chaplaincy members and our plans for the coming year.

We prayed the rosary in lots of different ways in October – traditional, colouring, walking, using art and music and, our favourite, eating! We have also run some lunch time club during which the children were making a decade of the rosary using some wooden and plastic beads and the pipe cleaners.

We were invited by the SVP to welcome their guests at the Mass for the Sick at St George’s Church and help them with refreshments.

Altar servers received training from Canon Alan so they can serve at school Masses.

In November, we used special prayer cards to remember and pray for family members and friends who have died.

This Advent, our Holy Family figures travelled around school, visiting every class, helping us to reflect on God coming to this world as a baby and what this means for us. For the first time, they also went to the homes of several pupils.
We have also made some Christmas cards for the parishioners who will be visited by the members of the SVP at St George’s Church over the holiday.

We encouraged the whole school community to join us in helping disadvantaged people in York by donating items for Christmas gift bags to be made by Kitchen for Everyone.
