Department for Educational Chaplaincies

Pope Benedict XVI said to young people, “You need to know what you believe. You need to know your faith with that same precision with which an IT specialist knows the inner workings of a computer. You need to understand it like a good musician knows the piece he is playing. Yes, you need to be more deeply rooted in the faith that the generation of your parents so that you can engage the challenges and temptations of this time with strength and determination.”

The Department for Educational Chaplaincies, led by Fr. PJ Smith, is concerned with the evangelisation and formation of young people. It includes School and Academy Chaplaincies, University Chaplaincies, the Youth Ministers’ Team, and the Youth Mission Team.
