The garden leading into the Chapel is designed as a place for quiet prayer and reflection, while the Rose Garden out the front of the Chapel on Edward Street is dedicated to Our Lady.
The Chapel is open daily from 8:00am to 5:00pm for private prayer and devotions. Mass is celebrated each week and staff and students are most welcome to attend Mass and other gatherings for public prayer.
