Iconic chapel is blessed
07 February 2017
It was a real joy to have the blessing of the Chapel on the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord. The theme of the service was of anointing and making holy and we welcomed Fr Philip Swanson, our Chair of Governors and School Chaplain to bless the new room that has been created as a place of quiet reflection, prayer and friendship. Helped by members of the student council and year 7 students, the room was blessed using holy water and incense. The blessing ended with the Lord’s Prayer.
Taking the icons of the new school badge as its theme, these are depicted in three striking stained glass windows. The room is filled with religious artifacts from the school’s 60 year history and includes a water feature which acts as a focal point for meditation.
The chapel, which is open to everyone as a place of prayer and quiet reflection, is a warm and beautiful space.
