Chaplain

The chaplaincy at Blackfriars is pastoral. The Chaplain is not a disciplinarian. He is available to all members of the school community to help them in their religious needs. To them all he seeks is to be "a guide, philosopher and friend" He assists those teachers especially who are engaged in the work of preparing the children for Sacraments.


He conducts Chapel Services when called on and celebrates Mass regularly for the school community, especially on the occasions of class Retreats. He preached to the whole school at the weekly assemblies. He celebrates regularly the Sacrament of Reconciliation.


In other words, and simply, he is a priest for the school, to serve all the members in whatever pertains to their relationship with God.
