The Divine Mercy

Roman Catholic Primary School

‘with Jesus in our hearts and the Children at the centre, we welcome and reach out to our diverse community in the Christian Spirit’

GIFT Chaplaincy Team

Our GIFT Chaplaincy Team comprises 2 children from each class from Year 1 to Year 6. The GIFT Chaplaincy Team provides support for our teachers and children, by helping to develop the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all pupils across the curriculum. The GIFT team Chaplaincy is led by Mr Mitchell, we meet weekly. 


GIFT Chaplaincy Team members assist with the delivery and development of the prayer life of the school by supporting assemblies, leading daily class prayer times plus prayer and liturgy. We have our own display board in school which we take responsibility for, by creating work to share prayers, reflections and information about the religious life of our church and school throughout the year. 


The GIFT Chaplaincy Team generates ideas of ways in which our school can support local, national and international charities, such as Caritas in the Diocese of Salford, and Cafod. They also support gathering evidence to promote our Divine Mercy School Beatitudes.
