A new Chapel of the Transfiguration

A new and larger Chapel for the Community and the Sanctuary for the future. The new Chapel will house the inner dome from the now demolished Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament.

In recent years, the numbers of Pilgrims coming to the Sanctuary for Mass and other events has increased markedly. The small Chapel of the Community of the Beatitudes has been extended but still struggles at times to cope with the numbers of pilgrims and community members. 

A brand new Chapel is being planned for the Sanctuary. Already the Chapel has resource consent and the large interior dome from the demolished Christchurch Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament is being cleaned and prepared for installation in the new Chapel.

We are looking for donations and benefactors to help us to raise the funds to build this very special Chapel.

What will it take?

Amount needed to complete


Progress to date...

Plans drafted. Dome obtained, cleaned dismantled and preserved. Initial resource consent granted.
