In our parish, the main part of the church is sometimes not condusive to private prayer. During the day, people are often walking through, the choir could be practicing, someone could be decorating, friends could be chatting, the janitor could be mopping, etc. There are two kneelers before the tabernacle, which is located in a side chapel, but the area is open to the main part of the church and is exposed to the same distractions.
We have a small room that is located close to this side chapel that is mostly used for storage. I'm wondering if we could turn this room into a prayer chapel. It has a door and would be quiet and private. However, I am concerned that it would not be appropriate to choose to pray in this room rather than before the Blessed Sacrament in the Tabernacle. What are your thoughts on this?
A secondary question - Is it permissible to have a second, small taberancle that could be kept in this prayer chapel?
