A Window Into the Heart of the St. Francis House Community

Through the generous gift of two supporting families, we will soon be adding a window to the large walnut door that welcomes friends and strangers alike into the St. Francis House Chapel. 

The window will be arched, following the prominent contours found throughout the Chapel space, with leaded design to match the Chapel’s original stained glass  windows. 

Although visually compelling, the window is foremost an act of hospitality. It takes courage to enter a new space for the first time. We are pleased to be able to offer individuals new to the Chapel an opportunity to see the space they are entering before they are in the space. 
This window will allow future generations of students to glimpse the life in Jesus, holy friendship, and heart for others, that have been true of this place in decades past and which continue to be the invitation and possibility of this faith community today.
