Matthew Lorne is our School Chaplain. He supports both pupils and staff on pastoral and spiritual matters, produces resources for Collective Worship and assemblies, and works with various departments and curriculum areas.
Matthew also acts as a link for our feeder parishes and other Archdiocesan organisations, as well as co-ordinating the different charitable collections that the school supports throughout the year.
The first prayer was written with the assistance of students, staff and governors and it is said each day in each lesson:
Help us to respect ourselves
and those in our school community.
Help us to believe in ourselves
and our God-given talents.
Help us to achieve our
full potential in everything we do.
Who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
Full of grace
The Lord is with thee
Blessed art thou among women
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus
Holy Mary, Mother of God
Pray for us sinners now
And at the hour of death
