Catholic and Anglican Bishops Bless unique new chapel

The Anglican Bishop of Salisbury, the Rt Rev Nicholas Holtam,  together with Bishop Mark jointly blessed a new chapel in a lovely celebration at St Edward’s School, Poole on Friday, 19th January.  St Edward’s is one of the two Joint Catholic-Anglican schools in the Diocese and so It was  particularly appropriate that it fell within the annual  Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity.  The former chapel was not large enough to accommodate a whole class, so a large classroom has been converted beautifully for this new role, with beautiful Christian symbols and furnishing prepared by staff and students.  The original chapel will become a place where those students who epitomise what St Edward’s is all about are remembered and commemorated.
