Located on the north side of the church, the chapel follows some of the design concept as the main church. The glass walls connect us to the outside, and allow for a large amount of natural light. The large stone wall gives the small chapel a sense of primitiveness and a connection to antiquity. The stone altar of the same shell limestone is the same design as the large altar. The seating is in chairs to allow for flexibility. We can alter the configuration for small funerals and weddings. We can seat 98 in the current configuration.
Bishop Grahmann graciously allowed us to dedicate the chapel in honor of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Mother Teresa devoted herself to caring for the most neglected poor. She became an important prophetic voice for the unborn and homeless children, asking that unwanted children be sent to her, so that she could care for them. Thus, she holds a child in her arms. Perhaps she will be seen as an ally to our efforts to end abortion and the neglect of children.
The chapel is where daily Masses are said (except on Fridays). It seats 90 which also makes it ideal for small weddings and funerals. Like the main church, it is also attached to the columbarium. The reconciliation rooms are located in the chapel.
In 2010, St. Jude Catholic Church commissioned local artist, Andy Buchanan, to recreate the "San Damiano Cross" for our Chapel of Blessed Mother Teresa.
