The chapliancy team are responsible for a number of events througout the year. These include:
Born for this
Born for This in a moving and powerful depiction of the Stations of the Cross in words, music and drama. Born for This is an exciting opportunity for our students to take part and understand the stations of the cross. For Roman Catholics throughout the world, the Stations of the Cross are synonymous with Lent, Holy Week and, especially, Good Friday. This devotion is also known as the "Way of the Cross”. It commemorates 14 key events on day of Christ's crucifixion. The majority concern His final walk through the streets of Jerusalem, carrying the Cross.
Each Christmas time we host a party for the elderly in the local community, we invite people from care homes and parishes into our school building, where they are looked after by our YCT. Guests are treated to all kinds of festive entertainment, from carols, games and quizzes, as well as performances from our Performing Arts students.
Our YCT are responsible for serving our guests with mince pies and afternoon tea, also taking the time to chat and get to know our local community. Each year we have a fantastic time and the students always seize the opportunity to share love and kindness over the advent period.
Over the advent period and for easter preparation we invite our MAC primary schools in to take part in a liturgy here at St Thomas More. This is organised by RE and Chaplaincy. The YCT (Youth Chaplaincy Team) take a major part in leading the day. This will take place over a morning. It gives the YCT to share their knowledge and improve their understanding by spreading the love amongst our primary students.
