Stained Glass Window Website

Announcing: The beautiful stained glass windows in LMU’s Sacred Heart Chapel can be seen at eye-level as well as from the floor in this newly completed website. The site includes images of each window with an accompanying story of the particular saint depicted and also the university seal of all but one of the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the U.S.. There are also three separate virtual tours that allow viewing of the entire chapel interior.

Faculty Founders: Peaceful Places

Wednesday, April 11, 12:30pm to about 1:20pm

LMU has some amazing outdoor spiritual spaces for anyone to experience. Take a 45 minute tour of two of those spaces on Wednesday, April 11 starting at 12:30pm.
