    Commissioning Chaplains – Fr David O’Malley SDB


    Taken from Fr David O’Malley’s Blog

    This is the time of year when many chaplains are commissioned or re-commissioned for service in school communities. Commissioning can be a very helpful experience for both the chaplain and for the school community because:

    • It highlights the spiritual dimension of the school and the seriousness with which the school approaches its ethos.
    • It emphasises the different role and relationships that the chaplain has to maintain within other professional relationships at school.
    • It allows the school to recognise its formal links to the church as a a church school, especially if the dean or some local clergy take part in the commissioning.
    • It is a formal invitation for others to recognise and pray for the chaplain and be ready to support their work.
