Hello! I’m Marsha and I have the great privilege of working not only within the St Francis of Assisi hub (The Becket, Our Lady and St Edward’s, St Edmund Campion, St Patrick’s, Blessed Robert Widmerpool and English Martyrs) but also across each of the 21 schools in the Our Lady of Lourdes CMAT! No two days of Chaplaincy are the same and I am constantly inspired by the faith, courage and creativity of the young people that I get to work with. I am really looking forward to meeting more of you across the Trust and I’m excited about the new opportunities that working together as part of the Our Lady of Lourdes Trust will bring!
Hi my name is Frances and I’m Chaplain to The Trinity School, St Teresa’s, Our Lady of Perpetual Succour and St Augustine’s.
I help to develop the Catholic life of the Schools, through drama, music, prayer and discussion. It’s great to spend time with the children and young people to help them explore their faith.
My name is Joe McCay and I am the Lay Chaplain at Christ the King Catholic Voluntary Academy in Arnold, Nottingham. I also support our feeder primary schools of Good Shepherd in Arnold, Saint
Margaret Clitherow in Bestwood, Holy Cross, Hucknall and Sacred Heart in Carlton.
Being a Catholic has always been a part of me and it is a very special part of me. Something which I feel obliged to try and pass on to others so that they can see the love of God in their lives. After
trying to do this through training to be a priest, I found myself in sabbatical mode and searching for others ways to do this. School chaplaincy was where God wanted me to go and I have enjoyed every minute.
I look forward to meeting more of you in the Trust and be assured of our prayers from East
Hi, I’m Vicki Mullen, Lay Chaplain at All Saint’s, Mansfield. Although I’m originally from Ireland, I grew up in Canterbury, Kent. I began at All Saints’ five years ago and love it! I am very thankful that I get the opportunity to allow our students to encounter Christ and feel that good chaplaincy allows our students to understand their position within our faith and our world.
Hi! my name is Joe Martin and I am one of the Lay Chaplains for The Becket, Our Lady and St Edward’s, St Edmund Campion, St Patrick’s, Blessed Robert Widmerpool and English Martyrs. I have the great job of work with fantastic young people everyday! I love working with the young people and helping them to encounter Christ in their own way. I am excited for great opportunities ahead and look forward to meeting more people from across our trust.
Hi, I’m Issie and I am one of the Chaplains in the Catherine McAuley hub. I mainly work at The Trinity School but I also used to work at the Briars so you may recognise me from there! The best part about being a chaplain? Hmm, probably the amount of incredible young people that I get to work with, every one of you inspire me every day. I love being able to watch faith grow from children in the nursery classes that I work with all the way to the 18 year olds in the sixth form. It’s truly a privilege to be able to watch God at work everyday.
