new chapel

Jul 9, 2015

Here at the Liturgical Institute there is a healthy daily rhythm of prayer (Morning and Evening Prayer of the Church and Mass) with class and study time – with some food and fun time too.

Tonight our community gathered to pray a Holy Hour together for Barbara who is struggling with poor health. Please join your prayers to ours, that Barbara may return to full health remain in service as Administrative Assistant here at the institute.

Our time of prayer was held in the newly restored St. John Paul II chapel. In the video clip below you can hear the seminary rector Fr. Robert Barron speak about the process of restoration. The photos further below show the completed chapel with all windows installed.

This chapel is a great example of a simple restoration, working within the confines of an existing building, and to a realistic budget.
