Chapel of St. Joseph High School, South Bend, Indiana

A reader sends in the following, showing us yet another high school chapel:


I saw your recent post on the beautiful new high school chapel in Huntsville, Alabama. It occurred to me that you might be interested in posting some information about another new high school chapel, which I believe compares favorably to the one in Alabama.

It’s called the Chapel of Saint Joseph, and is located at the center of Saint Joseph High School in South Bend, Indiana. It was just completed a couple weeks ago, when Bishop Kevin Rhoades celebrated the blessing of the chapel and dedication of the altar.


The chapel was designed by CSO Architects in conjunction with Duncan Stroik. The stained glass windows in the chapel were executed by Conrad Schmitt Studios as were the murals on either side of the apse. The painting behind the altar itself was executed by Ruth Stroik.
