—and a jubilee THE new chapel of the Sacred
Heart College, Woodeote Hall, Newport, Shropshire, was formally opened last week by Bishop Murphy of Shrewsbury, who presided at Pontifical High Mass.
The celebrant was Fr. A. Putts, S.C.J., Rector of the College, who was celebrating his silver jubilee, assisted by Fr. D. Geraerts, S.C.J. (Provincial) and Fr. M. Clifford, S.C.J.
The chapel, built in traditional style, seats 160 and contains seven side oratories dedicated to Our Lady, St. Joseph, St. John the Apostle, St. Willibrord, St. George, St. Patrick and St. Margaret Mary.
The building is connected with the College by cloisters. The roof is of copper, in the centre of which is a "fleche" or "open spire"— believed to be the only one of its kind in the British Isles.
The Bishop, addressing the congregation after the Pontifical Mass, congratulated Fr. Putts on the dual occasion of his silver jubilee and the opening of the chapel for which he was largely responsible.
Many priests from the Birmingham and Shrewsbury dioceses attended the ceremony.
