Stephanie Clay has plenty of experience behind her as St Margaret’s College newest chaplain.

The reverend will provide spiritual and well-being support for the students, staff and community.

She joins the college from the Anglican Parish of Amberley where she has been vicar for five years.

Facilitating positive growth in a holistic way through love, care, compassion and encouragement is something Clay said she feels passionately about and is looking forward to achieving this through worship, relationship-building and outreach.

College executive principal Diana Patchett said the role of chaplain is at the heart of the school.

“Our college was founded 111 years ago by Bishop Julius and, while the Anglican faith remains at the heart of who we are, the work of the chaplain far exceeds that of spirituality."

Clay will join St Margaret’s College in July.
