Our chaplaincy team leader, Mrs. Kandy Harkin is here to serve your spiritual needs! She will work to enhance your school experience by focusing on Gospel values and Catholic Christian attitudes through daily prayer, school liturgies, social justice activities and retreat experiences.
Mrs. Harkin is also available for spiritual direction and support. Students who experience loss due to a death, separation or divorce in their family or any other issue can find great comfort and support. Pastoral counseling recognizes the importance of a healthy spirit to the successful development of values, character, relationships, and direction. Fueling our faith, nurturing our spirit, and discovering focus and direction require a safe, respectful, non-judgmental environment, which allows for the free exploration of personal, religious, and spiritual issues.
“Be still, and know that I am God!”
Psalm 46: 10
What is a Retreat?
A Retreat is a time away from our normal routine to be with God: reflect on our relationship with God; to spend time in prayer both privately and communally; to open ourselves to the Holy Spirit; to talk about, reflect on and celebrate our faith!
It’s a time when younger students, older students and adults have a chance to share their faith-stories and build relationships of trust. It is a great opportunity for the Chaplaincy Leader to get to know the students more personally and students get to know the Chaplaincy Leader. It is a time when together we consider our personal relationship with God, as well as our place and role in the Church.
