Pastoral Care

St Brigid’s Pastoral Care Policy is based on the ideals of a Christian community.

Pastoral Care is love in action and is founded upon:

  • The loving concern God has always shown for his people throughout the history of salvation
  • The value and uniqueness of the individual person created in the image of God
  • The fact that ‘the Catholic School is committed to the development of the whole person, since in Christ, the Perfect Man, all human values find their fulfillment and unity’ (The Catholic School, 1977, n35)
  • The recognition that the ministry of each member of the school community contributes to the development of the climate of the school
  • The understanding that, ‘the entire effort of the Catholic teacher is oriented towards an integral formation of each student’.
  • The new diocesan Path to Life Framework contains 10 pathways for schools to help focus on areas of need in Pastoral Care through their School Review and Improvement process.
