Our Chaplaincy Team
During 2021-22 and the formation of our Academy Trust ,the chaplaincy teams worked together to design a Chaplaincy prayer.Each school contributed to the following.
Let us pray
Lord, God our Father,
Thank you for our school community.
Just as you inspired St Francis of Assisi,
inspire us to work together
to spread your Word within our school
and across our family of schools.
Help us to create a community
where love shines through us.
Help us to embrace God’s creation
by showing others how to love and care for
our environment as Stewards of the Earth.
Let the world grow as we follow Your path
Let us bring peace and care to one another
and listen to God’s Good News.
May you guide us and our academy
today and always,
on a path of a shared mission.
St Francis pray for us.
