As a Catholic Secondary School, St.Stephen has the advantage of a full time chaplain who is available to support staff and students. Our chaplain is a member of the student success team. The chaplain is part of our school ministry to support faith development, wellness, and excellence in learning. This development is enhanced through; School liturgies; retreats, excursions, morning prayer and opportunities for service supporting our commitment to social justice.
Our chaplain is a member of Catholic School Chaplains of Ontario and is available to counsel students with encouragement, hope, caring and compassion. This ministry provides an environment that is safe, inclusive, and non-judgmental. Our chaplain is a liaison with our local parish priests and charitable organizations.
