Chaplaincy

As a Catholic School the spiritual life of our pupils and staff is central to our educational mission. Inspired by our patron St John Henry Newman we aim to encounter Jesus Christ who is the way, the truth and the life. This encounter takes place through teaching the faith in the RE department, daily form prayer, assemblies (which offer opportunities for worship), regular celebration of the sacraments of confession and the mass, the care for our brothers and sisters through works of charity and by marking the principle liturgical feasts and seasons of the year. We have a school chapel, in which the Blessed Sacrament is reserved, dedicated to St John Henry Newman.

In all that we do, we aim to communicate and celebrate the faith believed and proclaimed by the Catholic Church.

Each year group has an assembly once a week. Assemblies include reflection, prayer and gospel values.

School Chaplain: Fr Luiz Ruscillo

Fr Luiz Ruscillo was born in Askam-in-Furness in Cumbria. His father is half Italian-half English and his mother is from Portugal. But Fr Luiz supports England in all sports. He went to school in Dalton, and then to Barrow VI Form for A-Levels. Fr Luiz went to Rome at the age of 18 to study for the priesthood for the Diocese of Lancaster. He has been a priest for 30 years and has served in Preston, Blackpool and Lancaster before coming to Carlisle.
 
When he was younger Fr Luiz played football and rugby for school and local teams. He also played table-tennis (badly) and cricket (even worse), but he is very competitive and enjoys all sports. When it comes to music he likes old fashioned stuff, big-bands and swing, rock 'n' roll, jazz and Motown. He likes singing, but people don't like listening to him sing. His favourite songs are "You'll never walk alone" (from Anfield) and "That's Life" by Frank Sinatra.
 
Fr Luiz is not interested in cars or clothes but is very interested in food and drink, and likes to do both. The 'love of his life' is Jesus, the Catholic Church and the Bible
