ACONCERTED effort to raise £60,000 for a new university chaplaincy is to be made in Liverpool early next year.
The appeal is being sponsored by the Chaplaincy Association of the University Catholic Society, under its chairman, Mr. Michael Moore, who is a lecturer in Nuclear Physics.
The new building, a design for which is being drawn up by Mr. Frederick Gibberd, will be built at the site of the new Metropolitan Cathedral and will provide fully modern facilities for the 1,000 Catholic undergraduates expected at the university within the next two to three years. At present there are about 700 Catholic students.
The appeal coincides with the Golden Jubilee Year of the Catholic Society.
The present premises, which also house the chaplain, Fr. Thomas McGoldrick, are very inadequate, and are due for demolition by 1970. Area committees are being formed to help raise funds but it is hoped that next year's campaign will provide the necessary support on a much broader scale.
