SJB Chaplain - Tina Fitzgerald
Greetings, and welcome to St. Jean de Brebeuf Chaplaincy. My name is Tina Fitzgerald and I have had the privilege of being the Chaplaincy leader here at SJB for 5 years. I am honoured to be a part of this community, and support those in it.
The role of the High School Chaplaincy Leader is to foster the faith, moral, ethical, and personal development of the school community; staff and students. The Chaplain’s office is to nurture the spiritual development of the school community within Christ, as well as, supports and respects all other faith denominations within the school community. The aspirations through the formal and informal activities lead by the Chaplaincy Leader, is to support and expand the spiritual, mental, and physical needs of the school community. Students and staff are continually invited to share their time and talents in various activities flowing from the Chaplain’s office; such as Outreach programs, Minister of the Holy Eucharist, Ministers of the Word, music ministers, prayer leaders, altar servers etc.
As a faith base community, we share in Christ’ mission of living a sanctified life through our observance of God’s Commandments in our daily actions, Eucharistic celebrations, prayer services, retreat days and participation in the sacrament of Reconciliation.
Most of all, we are continuously working towards creating a Christ-centred Community that will build God’s Kingdom here at St. Jean de Brebeuf. In partnership with our surrounding parishes, we believe, that spiritual development is deeply rooted in the union between the school, parish, and home.
The Chaplain’s office is a place of confidentiality, safety, support, encouragement, fun, and development. All students are encouraged to meet and get involved with the inclusive programs that run out of the Chaplain’s Office.
