Yes, me, my dad was the caretaker, for about 15yrs I think, while old donkers was there. Me and my dad used to set up the school hall for Mass while the church was being built. I think confessions was in the headmasters office. I did a short stint as altar boy when the church was built, but fell by the wayside after that. Just looked at google street view, it looks like Beruit
