SOUTHAMPTON CHAPEL CONSECRAUD

THE newly revised rite of consecration of churches was used on Thursday last when Archbishop King, Bishop of Portsmouth. performed the ceremony of dedicating and consecrating the newly enlarged chapel at the Training College of the immaculate Conception, Southampton. The ceremony had been postponed from last November, when the extensions were completed, to await the revision of the rite.

Work began on the extension of the chapel in December, 1960. The college architect, Mr. George Raymond of Fleet, Hants, who designed the original chapel, opened in 1924, was also responsible for designing the extensions. The enlarged chapel now accommodates 450 people. It is only part of a scheme of reconstruction and new buildings now being carried out at the college at a cost of £250.000 (excluding the cost of the chapel).
