Chaplaincy

Chaplaincy Team Leader

As a Catholic Secondary School, St. Thomas Aquinas has the advantage of a chaplain who is available to meet with students. 
Our chaplain is part of our school ministry to support religious faith development and excellence in learning. 
This faith development is enhanced through:
  • Monthly school liturgies;
  • Individual grade retreats; 
  • Daily morning prayer. 
  • A chapel is also accessible to staff and students for personal reflection.
  • Social justice activities.
  • Life Guards
  • STAC

Our chaplain is also available to counsel students with encouragement, hope, caring, and compassion. 
This ministry provides students and staff with an environment that is safe and non-judgmental. 
Our chaplain also acts our liaison with our school parish and priests: 
    • Father Balonwu Okpe and Father Eric Mason at St. Mary's Parish in Lindsay
    • Charitable organizations
    • Student and Families in need
    • Backpacks for Kids
