Chaplaincy Day

All children of Holy Cross Faith Club, also known as the Chaplaincy Team, enjoyed a wonderful visit to Clifton Cathedral last Thursday. The reason for the visit was to take part in the Commissioning of Pupil Chaplaincy Team members and they were joined by many other children from across the diocese. One of the most fantastic and memorable aspects of the commissioning service was to personally receive our orange chaplaincy badges and certificates from Bishop Declan who also shook our hands. During the act of dedication, we had to answer some questions with the words: “With God’s help we will.” The first question was: “You are called and chosen by God. You are called to bring all that you are, your gifts and your talents, to the chaplaincy team. Will you promise to be a people of prayer, to listen closely to God’s word and to try do what God wants you to do?”

We also very much enjoyed parading the Holy Cross banner in the Cathedral. Members of the Chaplaincy Team are: Angel, Kaira, Shirley, Evenciya, Ruel, Eliska, Rezel, Valeria, Frazia and Ammisha.
