Overview

This 1928 Spanish Colonial chapel was built by Brophy students, funded by Mrs. William Henry Brophy and designed by John R. Kibbey. Points of interest include a Mexican Baroque altar of pink volcanic Tufa stone, quarried near Wickenburg and hand-carved. Featured also is a survivor of the World War I battle of Verdun, a large wooden crucifix, carved around 1670. An artist from An Tur Gloine in Dublin, Ireland produced the series of Irish stained glass windows. Each represents an article of faith from the Apostles Creed.
