Parishioners of St. Ignatius Catholic Church celebrated the groundbreaking of a new adoration chapel Sunday morning.
Construction on the chapel is set to begin soon, and the goal is to have it completed in October with a formal dedication to coincide with the end of the Catholic “Jubilee of Mercy” year on Nov. 20.
The adoration chapel will allow people to spend time in quiet, reflective prayer and meditation and will be open between the hours of 6 a.m. to midnight.
The chapel’s architect is parishioner Elie Kozaily of Kozaily Designs.
The parish has been fundraising for the chapel for months and is just over halfway to their goal of $200,000 for the project.
There are a number of upcoming fundraising events in the works, including a Mother’s Day Spring Tea Party on May 7, which the whole community is invited to attend.
