This historic building was brought over stone by stone from France and reassembled here. I love the simple reverence that just stepping inside inspires in me.

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.

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.
