Chapels

In addition to our beautiful Chapel of Christ the Teacher, designed by Northwest architect Pietro Belluschi, each residence hall has its own chapel dedicated to a particular saint. These chapels offer students a space to gather for community Mass as well as for personal prayer and quiet reflection.
