The McAuley Place project is comprised of three developments:
The redevelopment of the convent building and gardens to provide 53 apartments for older persons and a community coffee shop.
The redevelopment of the parish centre to a modern community centre on three floors, with wheelchair access.
The new community centre is designed to provide large meeting / activity rooms, counselling rooms, a soundproof rehearsal space, a fully-fitted kitchen and wheelchair accessible toilets.
These facilities will be available to the whole community.
The restoration of the nuns’ chapel to a venue for classical, traditional, contemporary and multi-cultural music, dance and art.
This facility will also be accessible to the whole community.
The acquisition of the entire property would not have been possible without the incredible support and patience of the Sisters of Mercy to whom we are especially grateful.
