Designed by English-born architect Richard Upjohn, this small board-and-batten Carpenter Gothic chapel graces the campus of St. Mary's School with its beauty and simplicity. The main gable contains a cartwheel rose window above an entrance hood supported by curved brackets. A cruciform finial crowns the steep gabled roof.
