Past and Present: Resurrection Chapel

“Create a clean heart in me, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.”– Psalm 51.10

Crucifix at the Chapel, c. 1950

Ever since Rivier’s beginning, the chapel has served as a place of worship and prayer for students, sisters, faculty and staff alike. It was renovated twice; for the first time in 1963, and again in 2014.  The Lenten season seems like a perfect time to take a look at the chapel through the years.
