Positioned as the “heart” of St. Benedict is the 250-seat chapel located in the center of the building and its focal point. The building is constructed to surround the chapel. As soon as students walk in, they realize that the chapel is a special place, a holy place and a place for quiet and reverence and prayer. Mass, retreats, prayer services, First Friday Adoration and individual time for reflection make it truly the heart of the school.
