The Chapel is the center and heart of St. David Catholic Secondary School.

By serving the needs of all staff and students The Chapel, students and staff may visit the chapel to pray, reflect and spend quiet time in the presence of Our Lord.

When the red candle is lit, the Blessed Sacrament is present, inviting all to enjoy the beauty of the room.

Classes and groups may use the chapel for liturgies, reconciliation, Eucharist and religious events.


Welcome to St. David’s. My name is Annabel Quinn, and I am your new chaplain…after 13 years at St. Mary’s High School in Kitchener I feel I am coming home!

As a student who attended St. David when it was a Senior School (just grades 7-10) I am no stranger to the kind and happy spirit this school has always offered to anyone who has walked through the front doors.

The school may have physically changed – for one thing it has more than doubled in size…and the uniforms are new (we could wear Lee and Levi cords but no jeans!) And we had Fr. Larry Bordenaro, CR as our resident chaplain. Well, I may have his white hair, but I am not a priest, I have a family (who all attended St. David’s as well) and I am a woman.

One thing has not changed though; the students of today share the indelible marks of a communal heritage. Our Catholic legacy is who we are. I am blessed to be a part of this school community and offer my gifts to its service, and to the service of the Gospel.

He is here for us. As your chaplain I will work with St. David’s toward shaping an environment that enhances personal and communal growth in body, mind and spirit. My primary role as chaplain is to facilitate this growth in the context of our Catholic faith. This will be done by sharing with students and staff in liturgical celebrations, retreats, social action, support groups, pastoral counseling (including grief and bereavement), and walking with individuals and groups on their faith journey.

Please come visit me or if you need to talk. Send me an email at or call me at 519-885-1340 ext 5280.

Dear Staff, Students and Parents of St. David’s,

Last year, when our System Wide Pastoral Team launched Called to Belong, we could not have foreseen what the future held.  Yet the Spirit was with us, guiding our theme and moving us to create a deep sense of BELONGING and connection during such a difficult journey through a pandemic.  We feel the same about the second year of our three-year Pastoral Plan, entitled Gathered to Become.    

In John 6:35, Jesus proclaims “I am the bread of life.”    

Let this year of Becoming truly be a year of Transformation.  As the Eucharist transforms us, so let us be the “Bread of Life” to all we encounter.  May we experience transformation this year – from the challenges of new learning situations, platforms and teaching environments – to allow us to emerge from our chrysalis healthy and strong and to successfully be able to spread our wings and soar. 

Please consider watching this YouTube video introducing our theme this year of Gathered to Become   

 And like the Chrysalis we pray that during this year you will have a healing encounter with God’s transformative words for you.
