Spiritual Activities


Creston College Chapel

Care of the spiritual activities conducted at the college is entrusted to Opus Dei, a personal Prelature of the Catholic Church. Opus Dei was founded in 1928 in Madrid, Spain by Saint Josemaría Escriva. An organisation for lay people, it aims to relay to every person that God invites everybody to seek holiness in and through their ordinary work, family life and social relations. Opus Dei has an international presence, where members live and work in more than 90 countries. The senior staff are members of Opus Dei and are happy to answer questions about its aims and activities.

Chaplain: Rev Fr John Watson
