Overview of the Chaplaincy
The St Dominic's Chaplaincy exists to support students during their time in College. Together, we hope to grow in openness with God and in friendship with one another.
First thing in the morning and at various times throughout the year we pause for prayer. The Chapel and prayer room are also open during the day.
Serve - Mother Teresa said "To love is to serve". Join in our actions throughout the year to help those in need, whether here in our local area or abroad. Put your faith into action serving others. This can be done through our volunteering option in Fair World Week, or the fundraising activities that take place throughout the year. This last academic year, we have raised over £10,000 for good causes which is really going to make a difference to the lives of many, both here in the UK and internationally.
Support - sometimes life can be tough. The Chaplain, is available to students to provide a listening ear during challenging times.
Share - share your talents and skills in service of others. Help prepare the liturgies or masses. Take part in the different charity and volunteers activities.
Time Out - there are opportunities throughout the year to take time out by helping with some of the more reflective activities. The students, in both the first and second year, can also apply to join us on the Westminster Diocese pilgrimage to Lourdes in July.
There is a Mass in Chapel every Friday at 12:05pm, which is open to everyone. Throughout the year, we have Masses to mark important events and also to give, as a community, the opportunity to remember our loved ones who have passed away.
Confirmation - if you are a Catholic and have not received the Sacrament of Confirmation, there is the opportunity to be prepared and then receive the Sacrament.
Eucharistic Ministers - second year students are invited to become Eucharist Ministers and serve the College in this way.
The Chaplaincy is at the heart of St Dominic's, making space for the spiritual growth of each member of the community.
