The worthwhile survival of our Catholic Schools depends on the continually renewed promotion of their Gospel-inspired ethos.

In these pages, Chaplains and would-be chaplains will find an affirmation of their contribution, a challenge to appreciate its scope, and much practical wisdom, hewn from experience, for implementation. With its more contemporary outlook, this remains a pertinent book for chaplains and teachers, school governors, school leaders and all who are committed to the Christian ethos of a school.
