Does anyone have a school chaplain?

    As the title says really, does anyone have a school chaplain, and whet is their role? How closely do they work with the RE dept?

    Any ideas welcome as I will shortly be gaining a chaplain (I am HoD) and I am not sure how much I am expected to use him/her!

    Many thanks :)

  3. The term "chaplain" is used for when the local parish priest pops his head round once a term to utter some platitudes, and for a full-time paid member of staff who deals with pastoral problems whilst running a program of activities for the untroubled majority.

  4. Ours has some links with RE but doesn't really get involved in our dept.
  5. Our chaplain organises Friday Mass, runs youth SVP and charity groups and is there if pupils need someone to speak to. He doesnt do any teaching and the dept still plan all of the Lenten and Advent services which we deliver in lessons we also plan the Christmas and Holy Week services.
