"In Chaplaincy, we have been working towards bringing Gods voice to every student and providing an environment for faith to flourish."


‘Here I am Lord’- 1 Samuel 3:4

Chaplaincy is a bespoke concept at Bishop Challoner Catholic College that permeates every aspect of our Spiritual Life. We consider each and every one of our members of the community to be disciples, devoted to living God’s word.

We aim to offer a variety of opportunities for everyone to be able to be involved in living our faith.

As you journey through the Chaplaincy sections of our school website we encourage you to continue to find new ways and old favourites to ground in faith.


Live Simply

Bishop Challoner  has  been  supporting  Solidarity,  Simple  and  Sustainably  with  St. Dunstan’s parish and primary, St Alban’s and St. Jude’s. As a part of  this  our  Eco-Warriors  have  been  considering  more  sustainable  options  for  our  community.  We are  supporting  Fair  Trade  and  sharing  in  a  variety  of  options  that  can  be  done  in  school  and  at  home. The initiative we are currently embarking on is to see, reflect and act to fully live out the scripture and papal writings in our day to day life.






Chaplaincy Champion Team Meetings 

Our chaplaincy champion team meets throughout each term. These are interactive sessions for our chaplaincy champions to have a time of formation and collaborative discussions in the chapel.


Notable dates/Feast Days

In Chaplaincy, we celebrate and mark all notable dates in the Liturgical Calendar by pausing for prayer and reflection as a school community.  Resources for the pause for prayer are on the school sway page and emailed to students. In the chapel, we mark these days by having a prayerful activity on that day in the chapel for all to observe the significant day in the churches calendar.


Mass in the Chapel

Father Kurapati joins us each week for a class mass in the chapel. Together to give our intentions in solidarity with the Catholic Church and invite our pupils to lead in their celebration of the Lord.
