The Chapel is the centre of our school and a place of hospitality, support, dialogue and reflection. We offer opportunities to explore experiences of faith and belief, and space to ask questions about identity and meaning and to engage with contemporary issues. The Chaplain and Team are inspired by our own faith, we work respectfully with people with beliefs different from our own.
As a Catholic school, we aim to provide an experience of vibrant Christian community within a context of prayer, worship and spiritual reflection.
It is our hope that students will be given a positive experience of our religion, at its best, so that they can respond to God, make decisions for themselves, and develop an adult faith.
Liturgy and worship are at the heart of our community. We gather in the name of the Lord to declare our beliefs, praise our God, share our Gospel values and build up our family community, here in Stuart Bathurst Catholic High School. Experiences of happiness, sadness, joy, loss, mourning and achievement are drawn together, given words, and offered to God.
We are also reminded of our duty to care for others as members of the Body of Christ in the world today.
We recognize that each member of our school community is at a different stage on their own faith journey and we aim to help everyone make spiritual progress at their own pace.
