Our Work: Mission Chapels
If you wish you can donate funds to help build a small chapel in the developing world. St. Therese, our patroness, wished to spread the Gospel throughout the world “until the end of time”. We receive many requests for help from local bishops and priests to build, roof or renovate a mission chapel. In many places the only roofing chapels have is made of straw or other flimsy material which is easily destroyed in bad weather. The labour for the chapel building is usually provided by the local community so the costs are mainly for materials. Some of our benefactors wish to have a mission chapel built in memory of a loved one. We ask the local parish priest to write with details of the chapel (and a photograph if possible) once the work has been completed and we pass this on to the donor. Please contact us if you would like to help in this way.
