Clifton Diocese Annual Pilgrimage to Glastonbury
St Gildas Chaplaincy Team 2018-2019.
Welcome to our Chaplaincy Team page.
This page will show you who are the Chaplaincy Team, what they do and any support of help they may need from the school community.
If a child is interested in joining the Chaplaincy Team please encourage them to approach Mrs Gibbins.
Our academic year focusing on children helping others and prayer.
This year St Gildas’ Chaplaincy Team has been working hard to fundraise for Mary’s Meals. Instead of choosing something for the whole school to do to fundraise we let the children pick a way they wanted to fundraise to encourage them. After picking a way of fundraising we executed our plans. As a chaplaincy team we ran a stall to create prayer pebbles and we did prayer walks around our school.
We raised £ 504.68 altogether. A HUGE 'Thank You' to everyone.
This year we also had the privilege of carrying the Lampedusa Cross. Class by class we walked to our local church whist carrying the cross and praying.
Fundraising For Mary's Meals
Clifton Diocese Pilgrimage Cross
On Thursday 14th March, the Clifton Diocese Pilgrimage Cross arrived at St Gildas Catholic Primary , Yeovil. The chaplaincy team gathered all seven classes in the hall for a worship assembly to explain about the cross and pray for people on difficult journeys.
Every class designed a journey of prayer walk stations to follow around the school and The Holy Ghost Parish Church so that in total 25 miles were walked as a school community.
Each class made crosses in class during the day ready for the Reflection at the end of the day.
Feelings about my day with the cross:
'I felt great knowing Jesus was with me, protecting me.'
'I felt relaxed listening to prayers on the prayer walk.'
'I felt peaceful, joyful, really calm and reflective.'
'I felt honored and privileged to hold the cross.'
'I wish we could have had it a bit longer because it gave me time to think about others.'

The chaplaincy team lead whole school worship on Monday 3 December. They introduced the school to the Advent wreath and the meanings behind the individual candles.
They also introduced the school to the Year of Prayer and the plans they have for the whole school to become involved with it.

On Friday 30th November 3 of our new Chaplaincy team members went to Clifton Cathedral to take part in the Commissioning service. They received their badges from Canon Bosco and they joined in with the singing and dancing showing their pride and commitment to their Chaplaincy role. They also carried our school banner with pride. Well done Dinara, Amelia and Raf.
The children who couldn't attend the service will receive their badges during Worship in school.
