St Andrew’s College welcomes new chaplain

| April 10, 2017 | 0 Comments

On 30 October 2016, in the St Andrew’s College chapel in Grahamstown, Eastern Cape, Reverend David Stansbury was installed as the 29th chaplain to the college by Bishop Ebenezer Ntlali. The chapel was packed to capacity with students, teachers and the new chaplain’s family, friends and colleagues. The ceremony was beautifully scripted and began with a musical call from the pipe major, Callum Southey, for the guests and congregation to assemble in the chapel.

This was followed by the clergy procession to the resonant sound of the organ as the service began. Bishop Ntali, in his gentle and yet profoundly sincere presentation, preached a sermon of encouragement to Father David and his wife, Lindy. He also exhorted the congregation to be supportive of the vital ministry offered to the school by the chaplain. When it came to the liturgy of installation, the new chaplain was required to take the oath of canonical obedience to the Bishop and to make the formal declarations required of his office. The school principal and other dignitaries then formally welcomed Father David into the school community by presenting him with various symbols that represented his overall ministry.

And at the start of Term 1, 2017, Bishop Ntlali inducted St Andrew’s Preparatory School’s 11th Head in Memory Hall. Flanked by pillars of both school and community, Mr Brendan Brady took his post and was welcomed as principal by all present. Educated at Natal University, Brady obtained a BA degree and his HDE. He has completed the Leadership Development Programme through the University of the Witwatersrand Business School. Having headed the likes of St Charles’ Preparatory School, Clifton Preparatory College and Applewood Preparatory School, his expertise is welcomed.
