One of the great benefits of attending St. Kizito is that chaplaincy services are available during the school year. Chaplaincy is a collaborative and cooperative ministry involving all students, staff and school community members. Keeping the spirit of faith alive, the Chaplain works with staff and students to plan, co-ordinate, carry out and evaluate various projects and services throughout the school year.
As a faith based community, we strive to live and exemplify the life of Christ that permeates the entire enterprise of our school. “Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good”
(1 Cor. 12:4-7).
MESSAGE FROM SCHOOL CHAPLAIN ANTHONY:
Welcome to St Kizito Catholic School Chaplaincy. The role of the Chaplain is to help all members of the school community experience as fully as possible the reality of God’s presence and love in their lives. This is achieved through:
Words that proclaims the Good News.
Actions that demonstrate faith through alleviating poverty, promoting justice and peace and showing concern for God’s creation.
Relationships that make real the Gospel values of honesty and reconciliation, care and compassion. Through words, actions and relationships the whole community is nurtured in its response to God’s call and challenged to celebrate it joyfully in life and liturgy. We believe that school is a holy place because Christ is at the heart of all we do and are and strive for.
Our belief that God has created every person shapes our attitude to all so that we recognise that each person has been created with a purpose, is valuable and has gifts and talents, which they can use in everyday life. As well as teaching the Catholic faith and values through the curriculum we also strive to help students grow spiritually and foster in them the realisation that they are loved by God. Through our school Masses, Services of Reconciliation, retreat and other liturgies, we come together as a school family to pray and give thanks. With the prayer and worship life of the school we give students the time and space to be able to reflect on their life, and the place of faith in their lives.
Catholic education serves to support the healthy development of children and youth in a caring, Christ-centred learning environment. “To serve our students through excellence in Catholic education”
