Chaplaincy

This section

 

As a school founded to teach the Christian Faith within the Catholic tradition of the Church of England, the Chapel and all it symbolises are at the heart of the life of the College.

We actually have two Chapels: the Chapel of St Saviour and Crypt Chapel of the Ascension. The former is used for the major services for both Senior and Prep Schools, and for various assemblies during the week. The latter is for the quieter daily services and regular House assemblies.

The Holy Eucharist (also called the Mass and the Holy Communion) is celebrated daily during term time. The weekly Chapel Notice may be found elsewhere on the website. 

For the Senior School, the principal celebration is the College Mass at 4.35pm on Wednesday. For the Prep School, it is  Friday at 3.40pm. Any member of the College community (pupils, staff, parents, friends) is welcome at any service.

On Sundays, the Eucharist is usually celebrated at 6.30pm in the Crypt Chapel. This provides an opportunity for quiet reflection at the beginning of the week. A Sacristy team of pupils provides readers and servers at all celebrations, led by the Senior Sacristans, Upper Sixth pupils who are members of the Prefectural body.
