St Muredach's College

Pastoral Care

The Religious Education programme in St. Muredach’s College is closely aligned with our pastoral care team. While Religious Education teachers focus on planning and teaching programmes that are primarily class-based, these teachers, together with our College Chaplain, also offer the students many opportunities to encounter God through prayer and worship.

Students in every year participate in prayer services designed around the Liturgical Year and the various Christian rituals. They also participate in celebrations of the Sacrament of the Eucharist, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, meditation and class retreats.

This experiential dimension of faith is considered crucial in assisting the students develop a closer relationship with God and come to a more personal and mature understanding of the faith issues presented, studied and discussed in Religion class.
