Ursuline Motherhouse Chapel
3115 Lexington Road
Free and Open to the Public
Louisville is home to many beautiful places of worship of a variety of faiths, all of which have inspirational designs for their religious services. This talk by Steve Wiser, FAIA, Louisville architect and historian, will feature the architecture of local Roman Catholic churches from the mid-1800s up to today’s modern sanctuaries. This presentation will provide an enjoyable visual journey around our community to view these spiritual designs. The location for this talk is the remarkable Ursuline Chapel, which itself is an awe-inspiring space. The Ursuline Chapel is celebrating its 100th year, built in 1917. This event is free and open to the public.

He earned his architectural degree at the University of Cincinnati, and was recently named a ‘Fellow’ with the American Institute of Architects. Mr. Wiser is also President of the Louisville Historical League.
