A new chapter

Bellerive FCJ Catholic College welcomed Bishop Tom Williams to open two new buildings.

Bishop Tom blessed both the Sefton Park building and the O’Neill building, both recently completed as part of the college’s programme of capital investment.

The O’Neill building is named in memory of Mother Xavier O’Neill FCJ, who died in the 19th century from cholera which she contracted as a result of her work with the poor of the city. The sixth form leadership team were on hand to show guests around the new accommodation and the state of the art facilities that are now available for science, music, design and technology, as well as a purpose-built sixth form centre.

Bishop Tom has a long association with Bellerive, having served as school chaplain in the 1970s. Students, staff and governors joined Bishop Tom for the blessing, as did Bellerive’s headteacher Mrs Niamh Howlett. Sr Brigid Halligan FCJ, recently retired as headteacher was also in attendance to celebrate this exciting new phase of the college’s development.
