St. Augustine CES Chapel Named for Pope St. Gregory the Great

GregThe newly built chapel at St. Augustine Catholic Elementary School in Welland will now be known as the Pope St. Gregory the Great Chapel.

The name was requested by the students and staff at the school, based on the close connection Pope Saint Gregory the Great had as a mentor to Saint Augustine, as Augustine led missionaries to evangelize England.


The Board supported the name, which was also endorsed by Bishop Bergie, and Board Chaplaincy Leader Krista Wood.

The official naming will take place in connection with the feast day for St. Augustine, which will be celebrated May 27 at the school. Students will learn how Pope Saint Gregory the Great influenced St. Augustine’s life.
