Virtual fellowship: Each Friday at 3pm, during term time, members of the school chaplaincy teams will take it in turns to lead a short time of fellowship on the Trust Facebook page. You are very welcome to join us and, if you are not Christian, to pray in a way that reflects your journey of faith. Previous recordings of the prayers can be found here

The Trust Chaplaincy Team continues to meet virtually every week to liaise, discuss and plan innovative activities to enhance our ethos and Catholic life.
