ANGLICAN Archbishop of Perth Kay Goldsworthy visited Peter Moyes Anglican Community School yesterday to mark the start of a chapel’s construction.
The Mindarie school held a ‘blessing of the site’ ceremony on July 19, attended by Anglican Schools Commission chief executive Peter Laurence.
The chapel will accommodate up to 300 people and be a joint place of worship for the school and the parish, which covers Quinns Rocks to Butler.
“Our presence at the school chapel will strengthen the worship, and the resources of the school will strengthen us,” St Celia’s Parish rector Paul Howells said.
“We will have a larger and better-equipped worship space.
“We will be better placed to do something special at seasons such as Christmas and Easter.”
School chaplain David Deeny said it was an exciting new chapter for the school and parish.
“It will bring about a fresh vibrancy in the spiritual life of our two worshipping communities,” he said.
Construction is expected to finish in time for 2019 Easter services.
