After class this morning I walked across the quad to the newly dedicated Eck School of Law - a beautifully designed building, quite worthy of its location on the main circle. I entered the main door and was pleased to see the seal of the Congregation of Holy Cross in the marble flooring. I primarily wanted to see the chapel and I now have a new favorite chapel on campus.
The St. Thomas More Chapel is located on the ground floor just off the main archway and is certainly a worthy space for Mass and private prayer. Behind the altar are three large and beautiful windows that gives the 75-seat chapel a much larger appearance.
The main window in the center and behind the altar and tabernacle depicts the Blessed Sacrament evident in a monstrance.The right window is dedicated to Our Lady, patroness of the university.The left window depicts St. Thomas More, patron of lawyers and the law school.
The chapel's back wall has three windows as well, featuring Sts. Augustine and Thomas Aquinas and the seal of the Congregation.
