The Chaplaincy at our Primary School

True to our motto at St Aloysius College, ‘men and women for and with others’, our Primary School strives to nurture a caring heart in each of our pupils.

The Primary School Chaplaincy is responsible for the spiritual formation of the school community. It organises programmes addressed specifically for students and staff during the whole scholastic year. Parents too are addressed in one-off initiatives.

With the goal of fostering the Ignatian ethos of the school amongst parents, students and staff, the school chooses a particular theme each scholastic year, which guides the general chaplaincy activity.

The Lay Chaplain, Mr Anthony Mifsud, works together with a team of staff members who together dream up and implement the chaplaincy programme, with the help of all the school staff.

The Chaplaincy is responsible for:

  • Assemblies
  • Liturgies – Weekly Mass for children, other school liturgies and Confession
  • Ezercizzi/Retreats during Lent
  • Spirituality sessions in older classes
  • Holy Communion preparation programme for Prep 2s
  • Involvement in Concerts
  • Organisation of activities and initiatives that foster a sense of community and social awareness

Formation opportunities for staff include:

  • Tailored workshops
  • Weekly moments of prayer
  • Retreats
