Help needed for new School Chapel in Salisbury


St Joseph's Catholic School in Salisbury, Wiltshire does not have a chapel. This has resulted in a lack of space to offer true Catholic spirituality, especially through the Sacraments. As a temporary measure we had the occasional use of a cramped RE office, which was inadequate and is no longer possible.

The School's aim, headed and fundraised for by students, is to build a chapel to allow us to offer confessions, Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and the Holy Mass more often, as well as offering a space for quiet contemplation, in a liturgically suitable, beautiful and purpose built space.

We have currently raised in the region of £6,070 out of our £20,000 target. Therefore, we need your help; if you can help at all (whether with money, items or the building side) or would like more information please contact Jack Travers at jacktravers81@gmail.com, otherwise we would be most grateful of your prayers.

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated by the students and staff of St Joseph's.
