There is a proposal by the Spiritual Care Chaplaincy team at North Manchester General Hospital (Crumpsall) to close the Catholic Chapel of Saint Raphael in order to convert it into a Muslim prayer room. Worship spaces are going to be provided for Muslims, Jewishnpeople and Protestant Christians, and even a “Quiet Room” for people of no faith at all! Yet it is proposed that Catholics should have no space of their own.
St Raphael’s Chapel contains the Blessed Sacrament and Mass is celebrated weekly. It is well used and highly valued by patients, staff and visitors at the hospital. Please sto this valued resource which is much needed when people are at their lowest ebb.
