Chaplaincy

We are pleased to have a strong Chaplaincy Team leading us on our journey in the footsteps of Jesus, in the spirit of the gospel, within the traditions of the Roman Catholic Church, aware of the spirit of the age in which we live.

We have a programme of AWAYDAYS for Years 7, 8 and 9; each tutor group has had a day out of school each year for reflection, shared activity and prayer.

During Lent we offer Year 10 and Year 11 students opportunities to explore their faith journey through a range of activities.  Additionally, each Year group comes together for a Penitential service, followed by the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. At Easter, we hold two large services in the Sports Hall to promote awareness of the Easter Triduum - the three days that make up the celebration of Easter, recalling Jesus' Last Supper with his closest friends, his arrest, trial and execution and his rising from the dead. All students and staff attend one of these services. Similarly, we end the Christmas Term with a service led by Deacon John Edwards to celebrate the Advent season and look forward to the celebration of Christmas.

As a key part of our Year 7 Induction programme, all new Year 7 students and their families are invited to one of two evening Masses held in September to complete the process of welcoming our new youngsters into full membership of the All Hallows community

A very special event is the annual remembrance Mass, held in the month of the Holy Souls, to commemorate all former students, staff and governors who have died, and also family members of present All Hallows students and staff. All Hallows Day (the Feast of All Saints on November 01) is celebrated by two whole school Masses.

Finally, (weather permitting!), we end the school year with an open-air mass to celebrate achievement and to bring the whole school community together before the long summer break
