High Peak Chaplaincy
St Thomas More has always had a rich and vibrant tradition of Chaplaincy. It draws students from all faiths and none, and calls them to give back to the world. Through chaplaincy our students can learn more about themselves, their vocation, and how to “Be More” in all they do.
Chris is the ‘High Peak Chaplain’, and serves us and some of our Catholic Feeder Primary schools across the High Peak. It is his role to support and guide our young people and to help answer the big questions, but he is also on hand for any conversation. His office can be found at the back of the Hall under the Chapel stairs and will always make time for a chat.
Anyone who wishes to join our STM Chaplaincy Team, will have a choice of 3 teams to put their enthusiasm into. Each team has a captain and Vice-Captain who help lead the various teams. Go and have a conversation with Chris about the team and which you might be suited to.
