Our Chapel - At the Heart of St Bede's College
The Chapel is the College’s most important building and for almost 80 years it has sat at the heart of St Bede’s College. Sadly, the Chapel was badly damaged in the earthquakes of 2011 and had to be demolished.
Following the earthquakes an old science building was converted to a small chapel. It has served us well as a temporary chapel, but the time has come to build a new chapel.
Now in 2018, the College is calling on it’s old boys, parents and the wider Bedean community to Give a Little to help us rebuild our Chapel. The Board of Proprietors are deeply appreciative of the support being pledged by the Old Boys and the Foundation.
The Chapel Appeal, lead by the Old Boy’s Association aims to raise upwards of $1.5M. The balance of the $3.5M chapel rebuild cost, will be met by a generous $1M grant from the Society of Mary with a further $1M being allocated by the Board of Proprietors in part from Insurance monies.
The Chapel Construction is now well underway as of October 2018 and recent footage can be viewed here showing the tilt slab placement.
