At St Richard’s our lay chaplain is Mary Collinge.

The chaplains fill a pivotal role in the life of our school by ensuring that the Chaplaincy mission is at the heart of everything we do.

They encourage our students to explore their faith by leading liturgies, extra curricular activities including prayer groups and the Mini Vinnies (SVP) group.

They also support the pastoral care of our students and liaise with our family of schools and parishes.

Junior Chaplaincy Team

As part of our chaplaincy, we have a group of eight dedicated and specially commissioned Junior Chaplains from KS2 who are working really hard to share the Good News Jesus brings. Supported by Mrs Collinge, they meet every other week to plan and deliver fantastic Acts of Worship, bringing the Word to life with their creative approaches – drama, song, art & prayer - and helping the rest of the school to understand the Gospel message.

“Our job is to share the Good News and teach everyone to follow Jesus.” (Chaplaincy Team)
