Chaplaincy Groups - St Wilfrids Catholic High School and Sixth Form College

Chaplaincy Groups

Youth Alpha is an introductory course to the Christian faith. Practicing Catholics, distant Catholics, Christians of other denominations and students of no faith can participate in this short course facilitated and supported by our own students. The 6 session course starts in September.

What is it?
An introductory course to the Christian faith.

Who can come?
Anyone between the ages of 11-18.

Who is it for?
The course will particularly benefit those ‘new to’ or ‘interested in’ the Christian faith.

Who can come?
Please feel free to invite any of your friends from school or college. We always have fun at St Wilfrid’s Alpha Group, and your friends will find the Alpha course enjoyable, interesting and relevant for their lives.

If I come to one am I expected to attend them all?
No. Come to as many or as few as you’d like. As with most things in life though, the more you put in the more you will get out. If you miss a couple of sessions, don’t worry, come along to the next session and we’ll fill in the gaps for you. If you have a friend that can only start coming along on say 1st April, or even just wants to attend one session as a one-off on say 27th May, that is fine too.

Where are the Youth Alpha sessions and what are they about?
They will take place in Chaplaincy.
The start date of Youth Alpha will be on Wednesday 5th December for 12 sessions starting at 3:20-4:20.


Led by the Franciscan Sisters of Renewal who will come to our school from time-to-time to support prayer and meditation in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. Light Fever will take place once a month at breaktime. Look out for the announcement and posters in the Chaplaincy.

Rosary Group

From September we will meet at breaktime on a Monday to pray a decade of the Rosary for the intentions of our school and our parish communities. If you have any intentions you would like us to pray for please let us know.
