I was astonished to learn that this building was transported from France stone by stone and reconstructed on campus. They offer mass at noon.

This is a lovely little chapel on the grounds of Marquette University. On Sundays they hold a mass that a number of students attend. It is definitely worth a visit; very peaceful.

An amazing find in the middle of Milwaukee. The Marquette campus is beautiful but finding a 15th century chappel there is amazing. A curator there took lots of time to explain details and not in a theoretical, theological way, but historically. Fabulous stop!

We just went In. It is very small. Got there before the mass started. We looked up the schedule for mass on line. Will only take 15 minutes to view it at most.
