Chapel of Our Lady of Mercy

We are very proud of our roots. After arriving in East London, the Sisters of Mercy set about doing God’s work by looking after the poor within their communities. In 1933, they started ‘Bishop Challoner Girls School’ and as they say, the rest is history. In honour and with our thanks, we dedicated our new Federation Chapel to the Sisters of Mercy who live in the Convent nearby still to this day.
