1' HE new 08,000 Catholic chaplaincy at I.iverpool University, which will cater for I,0(X) students, was opened by Archbishop Beck of Liverpool ast Saturday.

The mayor of Liverpool, Alderman Louis Caplan, the Anglican Archdeacon of Liverpool, and the universtiy's vicechancellor attended the day-long ceremony which opened with an academic Mass.

'the two-storey building was designed by Mr. Frederick Cribberd. architect to Liverpool Cathedral. It is faced with Portland stone to match the cathedral crypt, which the students use as their chapel.

In the centre of the ground floor is a waiting room where-according to Fr. Thomas McGoldrick, the chaplainstudents can casually drift in and out, meet one another and chat.

Glass partitions separate it from a large lounge, which will double

as lecture hall and dance hall. and eight smaller rooms for meetings and conferences.

Upstairs are the library, students' kitchens, chaplains' and housekeepers' flats and visitors' rooms. The building, situated in the centre of the university, replaces an old house bought 25 years ago for £300.

The chaplaincy opens with a debt of £20,000 and will cost £3,000 a year for upkeep. Fr. McGoldrick plans to ask undergraduates to subscribe £1 each annually and graduates 10s. a month.

Last week the university's Guild of Undergraduates set aside a room in the students' union in which the five chaplains will take it in turns to give any private advice needed.
