Seaford Welcomes New Chaplain

Licensing with Bishop of ChichesterwebSeaford College had the pleasure of welcoming Father Colin Datchler as Chaplin at Seaford at the beginning of term.  During his first week, Father Colin was licensed to be Chaplain at Seaford College by The Right Reverend Dr Martin Warner, Bishop of Chichester in Seaford’s Chapel.  The service was described by Angela Thornley (Headmaster’s PA) as: “Magical, you could really feel the love in the Chapel.  There was a cross section from the community from his former parish and his new community at Seaford College. He also had strong support from his family and Bishop Martin was very engaging.”

Jo Browne (Seaford’s Secretary) added: “It left me with a warm fuzzy feeling, it left you glowing.  It was such warm atmosphere and very uplifting.”

 

Father Colin’s character and personality came across on the first day of term when he was caught practising the art of photobombing as parents were taking first day photos outside the Johnson Centre!

Father Colin has a keen interest in rugby and is planning to do some coaching at Seaford in the future.  He met the 1st XV as part of his induction to Seaford.

 

 

 

A recent Prep School Chapel Service had a very interesting theme.  Father Colin explained;”It was about standing on the shoulders of those who have gone before us here at Seaford.  It’s easy to look at the people at the top who are in the seemingly glamorous positions, but each person in that pyramid had a vital and important role.  Knowing we stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us means we 1) benefit from their experience, 2) inherit their traditions, and 3) means we are connected to them in some way.”

Headmaster, John Green welcomed Father Colin and added: “We are very fortunate to have Father Colin join us, he has a wealth of experience working with young people and he has ambitious plans to be part of the Seaford community in his role as Chaplain.”
