Leavey Chapel

The chapel of Our Lady of Good Hope was dedicated in 1972 for the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary and the Sisters of St. Joseph, who came to the campus in the early 1970’s and resided in the newly constructed Leavey Center. The windows are signed by Isabel Piczek, a Hungarian, who, at age 16, had been a recognized artist in Rome. The chapel has a sense of intimacy and also of privacy when one is seated in the monastic choir stalls. The floor-to-ceiling stained glass windows are the principal source of illumination, and invite consideration of their symbolism and their possible meaning.

On the upper campus, above and across Ignatian Circle Drive from the Burns Art building.
