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.

Chartres Pilgrimage 2017

Clifton pilgrims in the Channel Tunnel
The annual Pentecost Pilgrimage from Notre-Dame de Paris to Notre-Dame de Chartres was particularly well-attended this year, with around eighty people from England and Wales among the 9,000 who prayed, sang and chatted their way through the French countryside. 

Seven of us (pictured above, minus Deacon Seth Phipps, FSSP) were from Clifton Diocese, including Fathers Alexander Redman and Bede Rowe, who led meditations and the Rosary, and heard confessions as we walked.

The Traditional Liturgy is always an integral part of the Chartres Pilgrimage. We started bright and early on Friday morning, 2nd June, with Low Mass in the crypt of Westminster Cathedral, before setting off on a coach to Dover for the ferry crossing to Calais.

The pilgrimage proper began on Saturday morning with Solemn High Mass in the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris. High Mass on Pentecost Sunday was in a field near the town of Rambouillet, celebrated by Monsignor Michael Schmitz, Vicar General of the Institute of Christ the King, Sovereign Priest in the United States.
Cardinal Burke giving his sermon in Chartres Cathedral
The culmination of the pilgrimage, as always, was the final Pontifical High Mass in Chartres Cathedral, this year celebrated by His Eminence Cardinal Raymond Burke.

After a meal and a good night's sleep, the British chapters concluded our pilgrimage with High Mass in the chapel of Notre-Dame de Sous-Terre, in the crypt of Chartres Cathedral.

Next year's pilgrimage will be from Friday 18th to Tuesday 22nd May. Find out more at http://chartresuk.blogspot.co.uk/.
