Bishop meets lay chaplains from East Anglia schools

Bishop Peter Collins met with Lay Chaplains to Diocese of East Anglia Catholic Secondary Schools and the Chaplain to St Bede’s Inter Church School, on Friday October 6.

School lay chaplains were also present from Notre Dame, St Benedict’s and St John Fisher high schools.

Bishop Peter, who has a background in education spoke of the challenges of being a school chaplain and free flowing discussion followed which was very fruitful.

Also at the meeting were Dr Andy Stone, Director of Diocesan Schools and Hamish MacQueen, Director of Diocesan Youth Service (all pictured above).

There will now be three meetings a year, including an opportunity for training and formation, as the Diocese develops this valuable ministry in our schools.
