Gethsemane Chapel

Gethsemane Chapel is named for the Garden of Gethsemane, where our founders discerned God’s call for their lives. This humble chapel is home to Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.

  • Stations of the Cross line the walls containing small fragments of each Station in Jerusalem, along the Via Dolorosa where Christ carried the Cross.  
  • To the righthand side - Stone from Monte Sant'Angelo, where the Archangel Michael appeared during times of tribulation.

Sacred art as an aid to your prayer, reflection, and meditation is also housed in this chapel.

Seats 35 persons. Gethsemane Chapel is available for personal prayer during regular business hours (9am-5pm).
