College Chaplain - Mr Tom Fusi
“I started as the Lay Chaplain for St Benedict’s in November 2022. After leaving the college as a student in 2017, I spent a year volunteering at the Walsingham House Retreat Centre in Brentwood where I developed a passion for journeying with young people in their faith. I hope to bring energy, life and enjoyment to my role here and I have high hopes for the future!”
The Chaplaincy Office is located on the first floor of the Blyth building by the library
