Spiritual Life


College Chaplains

Two priests- Fr. Joseph Begley (Parish Priest of Kilcummin Parish) and Fr. Niall Howard (curate of Killarney Parish) both give of their time and expertise to act as chaplains to the College. They play a significant role in the whole life of the College, including pastoral support to the school community.

Spiritual Development


With the assistance of our school Chaplains, St. Brendan’s aspires

  • To give the students the opportunity to explore their values and beliefs
  • To support and develop their own religious beliefs
  • To provide opportunities to celebrate the sacraments as a school community
  • To encourage the development of what inspires them and others
  • To celebrate difference and mutual respect

Prayer of St. Brendan 


Help me to journey beyond the familiar
and into the unknown.
Give me the faith to leave old ways
and break fresh ground with You.
Christ of the mysteries, I trust You
to be stronger than each storm within me.
I will trust in the darkness and know
that my times, even now, are in Your hand.
Tune my spirit to the music of heaven,
and somehow, make my obedience count for You.
