Chapel Refurbishment Project
This year at St Francis we are embarking on a project to refurbish our Chapel at the Retreat Centre. Our Chapel is a place of worship and prayer open to all, providing a place for reflection, prayer, quiet and the celebration of the Sacraments. Prayer services and weekly Masses celebrated by the Franciscan Community are held weekly in the Chapel and are open for everyone to attend.
Having had its last makeover in the 90’s the Chapel is due for a refresh. We believe these improvements will enhance the experience for all our guests and visitors who seek a quiet and tranquil space for spiritual refreshment and renewal.
New Chapel Design
We have been very blessed to have the opportunity to work with Evonne Tay of Poplin Design who has helped us with the new design of the Chapel. The refurbishment plans include:
- new sanctuary
- a new coat of paint
- lighting & electrical improvements
- new furniture for the altar
- new seating for the congregation
- new artwork
