But, me, being of the curmudgeonly inclination, I think not.
The very phrase 'Prayer Room' summons up images of a room set aside for the use of Muslim students or, (horror of horrors) the ubiquitous ecumenical room where all sorts of odd denominations hold sway.
Now this particular Catholic School is in a well heeled area, Hove, on the outskirts of Brighton, and I have written about it in the past and of how they hold, or used to hold, ecumenical services.
Not good, in a Catholic school, not really much good anywhere, after all, just what is the point?
Now Cardinal Newman School, for such it is, actually has a rather beautiful and grand chapel; the original prayer room, if you like.
But, instead of using this sacred space they have created a prayer room that looks as if it caters rather more for the Primary rather than the Secondary pupil.
The video clip on the link below carries the usual silly sort of quotes along the lines of "pupils feel comfortable in it" (the new prayer room).
But really, Bishop Conry needs to man up and squash this whole lunatic concept and drag the school back to sound Catholic practice.
H/T to A & B News Blog (although, I suspect that they think the concept is great).
There is a link to a video on the A & B post.
