The Chaplaincy is one of the really special things about Lagan College. It's a quiet space where students and staff can go and spend time in quiet thought or prayer. It is open to all students, no matter what their religious background is.
Lagan College has two chaplains who work in the school full time - Mr Sowney and Mrs Killick.
The chaplains are always available with a cup of tea and a listening ear if you are feeling down. They open up the chaplaincy at lunchtimes for students who want to come there to eat their lunch, play games or just sit and chat. They also plan and lead assemblies on all sorts of issues, including our big assemblies throughout the year - Harvest, Remembrance Day, Christmas, Ash Wednesday and Easter.
The chaplains see all of the big messages at Lagan as being important - they lead a student team who are trained to help with reconciliation between people who have fallen out, and they work together to make sure students from all backgrounds are equally welcomed, cared for and respected. They are very proud of the fact that Lagan College is part of the international 'Cross of Nails Community' which recognises the work we have done (and still do) in reconciliation in Northern Ireland.
