Bethlehem Catholic High School is founded on Christian beliefs. At the heart of our philosophy is the opportunity for every student and staff member to grow in Christian faith. Chaplaincy plays a key role in helping to provide this opportunity. The chaplain is involved in teaching the Word, in building community and in celebrating faith. This is accomplished through a variety of activities such as daily devotions, Morning Prayer, Liturgy of the Word, organizing Masses, Advent and Lenten activities, Reconciliation, retreats and community outreach projects. The chaplain attempts to reach out to all students, with a particular emphasis on students new to the school, the lonely, the troubled and the bereaved. There are also opportunities for individual counselling.
