Every living community needs a heartbeat. The regular rhythm of meeting together each week in Chapel, whether on Thursdays or Sundays, is a vital part of life at Loretto, epitomised in the growing enthusiasm when the school is at song. 

In Chapel we pause from the rush of the hectic week: to listen, to reflect, to think, to broaden our perspectives from the inevitably inward focused and preoccupations of school life. Eyes and hearts are encouraged not only to look in, but to look out and up.

The Chaplaincy is passionate about connecting the truth and wisdom of the Christian tradition, found especially in the Bible, to teenagers in contemporary society. A range of speakers aim to challenge, encourage and build up each member of the community in their spiritual development.
