Chapel

The chapel was built in 1910 according to a plan by late Bro. Cassian of Jesus (senior). This was renovated in 2010 and followed a new design. It has preserved several paintings by old boys of St. Benedict’s College, done around 1910. Most of the paintings follow the theme of the Child Jesus. It has a curved ceiling, wood panels and a wooden floor. An artistically carved alter piece adorns the sanctuary. The most important attraction of the chapel is the rare statue of the ‘bambini’, the baby Jesus kept under the alter. The benches in the chapel and the main alter are products out of the acacia wood from the property itself. This is a place of prayer and meditation. Holy mass is celebrated on every first Thursday evening and whenever a priest visits the Retreat House.
