The work of the Presentation Brothers as School Chaplains is based to some extent on Constitution 52, from the Presentation Brothers constitutions, which reads:

“In the strength of our tradition we must strive:

  • to proclaim afresh the power of God’s healing love;
  • to defend the values of family life;
  • to promote reconciliation and unity;
  • to respond to the needs of the poor;
  • to sanctify life, especially that of our youth.”
