Rosary Hall Chapel

Rosary Hall Chapel is a sacred worship space. The steeple is a beautiful symbol of God’s presence to all those who come near.  Above the front doors, you will note our two patrons: St. Dominic de Guzman (1170 to 1221) – a priest, walking preacher and founder of our order – as well as St. Catherine of Siena (1347-1380) – an Italian mystic and laywoman who helped the sick, mediated disputes, and wrote letters of encouragement to many, including the Pope. Inside the beautiful chapel, there is wooden-stall seating which face each other as is the tradition for monastic prayer. Noting that our congregation originally was cloistered, there is a rood screen, an ornate wooden partition, that served to keep separate the sisters and the neighborhood congregants who were welcome to attend Mass and pray. Inside, there are murals and stained-glass windows depicting Dominican saints.
