We are fortunate to have a school chapel at St. Joseph’s. Every day, prayers are quietly said by pupils and staff and it is dedicated to St Joseph. It has a quiet and reflective atmosphere and is never locked, being open for prayer round the school day clock. The chapel provides a space and quiet atmosphere for us to concentrate on our prayers, joys, or fears in peace and quiet.
We celebrate class Masses and staff Masses with our parish priests and other members of our school community. Our caretaker Mr McKie, crafted the alter that we have in our chapel and the children designed the Stations of the Cross in art club with Mrs Thompson our art teacher. Mrs Gelson is looking into stained glass windows to enhance the ambience and ethos of this spiritual space.
