THE SCHOOL CHAPLAINCY TEAM (SCT) is ACCS’ response to calls by Catholic schools for support from the archdiocese in the areas of religious education, Catholic ethos and relations with parish communities.
Each SCT comprises lay, religious or clerical persons who minister to a school community.
The SCT aims to support schools to nurture the Catholic character of Catholic schools, and to enhance present school efforts to provide quality Catholic education, especially in the areas of religious education, pastoral care and sacramental life.
At the end of July this year, 37 school chaplains completed a four-module course consisting of the role of a chaplain in a Catholic school, pastoral ministry skills, educational content and human development, and faith formation.
The same course will be held in August next year. ACCS hopes more people will offer their services so as to increase the pool of trained persons.
