The Chapel serves not only as the spiritual center of the school but also as a focal point for our students, faculty and administration, alumnae, and visitors. While preserving the integrity and beauty of this sacred space, the Chapel will be adapted to accommodate the entire student body and to highlight its unique architectural features.
Preservation plans include repairing damaged plaster, increasing seating, improving lighting, and enhancing architectural features to highlight the history of Duchesne and the Religious of the Sacred Heart in Omaha.
Duchesne has retained Omaha-based liturgical and spiritual design expert Brother William Woeger as a consultant on this project. Br. Woeger will ensure the work preserves the sanctitude of the space, honors its original Thomas Kimball design.
