“ Then Jesus had them to get the people to sit down in groups…” (Mk 6:39)
The gem of King’s House is the beautiful chapel designed and built by Br. Mel Meyer, SM, in 1981. For 40 years, retreatants have sat through countless prayer services, moments of Eucharistic Adoration, and Masses in our current chapel while on retreat. We are pleased to tell you that most of the artwork in our chapel will be coming with us to our new location at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows. The Chairs, however, will not make the move. Our Chapel Chairs are original to when the Chapel was built in 1981. They have given over 40 years of good service to retreatants looking for a place to “get away and sit with the Lord.”
We want to provide the best-sacred space possible for our retreatants to experience resting with God while on retreat.
We need your help to replace the 70 chairs in our chapel. Will you consider sponsoring the cost of one chair? The cost of one Chapel Chair is $500, but we gladly accept funds in any amount to be used for the purchase of these chairs. Should you wish to donate the full cost of a chair ($500), you may also designate this donation as memoriam for a specific person, and a memorial plaque with the person’s name will be included in a Memorial Wall, also to be part of our new Chapel.
Thank you for your support in helping us to fulfill the injunction of Jesus to have the people seated in groups.
