Chapel Centennial

It only happens once in a century! The Ursuline Sisters are preparing to celebrate 100 years of the Motherhouse Chapel, starting in January 2017! As we approach this centennial of the Ursuline Chapel of the Immaculate Conception in Louisville, Kentucky, we are reminded that this Chapel remains the epicenter of the Ursuline Sisters’ physical and spiritual presence on campus. The Chapel is used daily by the Sisters and is in continual use by an active, academic cluster of Sacred Heart Schools.

From January through December 2017, special liturgies and performances are scheduled in the Chapel (See schedule list of events.).

Because the Ursuline Sisters want to preserve and protect what makes the Chapel iconic and unique to our religious community and to the Ursuline Campus, a brick and mortar preservation campaign, to be completed by 2020, has been initiated.

Our vision is for this sacred space to continue to be used and in updated condition for the next 100 years. We hope future generations will experience the beauty of the Chapel, intertwined with the inspiring history of the Louisville Ursuline Sisters.
