The chapel is part of a :Elm, building programme at Conway, and will he the first permanent Catholic chapel to be built at a Naval Cadet Training School in this country.

The building programme also includes plans for a Protestant chapel. The 20 Catholic Cadets at Conway are served by Fr. P. Gough, O.F.M. Cony., Apostleship of the Sea chaplain.
