Chaplaincy - Ratcliffe College


Outside the classroom, opportunities are provided for students who wish to be prepared for First Communion and Confirmation at School.  The Senior Chaplaincy Group celebrates the talents of students by contributing to liturgical and other activities through music, drama and readings.  Students can volunteer to be altar servers or contribute in other ways to liturgies such as at the offertory or as readers.  Students in Years 7-8 make a residential retreat either to the Briars Residential Centre in Crich or Alton Castle.  The College Chapel is open for reflection and prayer throughout the School day, and the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Mass are offered weekly during lunchtime or after school.  Father Philip and Miss Hall are happy to be available for students should they wish to discuss matter of faith.
