A quiet place to pray in the heart of the campus

St Joan of Arc Chapel is great for a quiet place to pray while on campus. Many of the Masses there have a special community that gathers regularly.

Joan of Arc chapel has always been very special to me. When you visit be sure to ask questions as there is no active tour being given, and the story and details about this chapel are very compelling.

Make this a must stop when in Milwaukee. A piece of French history located in the Marquette area of Milwaukee. If you can catch a mass here, you will be glad you invested the time.

I wanted to visit this Chapel, and drove up and down Wisconsin Avenue to find a place on the street to park. It is located in the middle of the Marquette University Campus. I had to walk past a few buildings to get to the beautiful grounds. It was Summer and there was an abundance of flowers, and students were... More

Located within Marquette's campus, a block in from busy Wisconsin Ave., is this tiny stone chapel. Even if you're not there on MU business it is worth a look and a place to pause. Step in and feel the character and contemplate moving the stones from France to this unique spot. We found it because our children went to MU... More

This is an original French chapel, now nestled on Marquette's Campus. Oldest stone structure in the Western Hemisphere, only because it was dismantled and brought over here. France (and many other countries) have since changed their laws regarding such antiquities, so this record will likely remain. It is quaint and peaceful. There is a stone in it that is several...

Not a re-creation. The original French chapel at which Joan of Arc prayed. Disassembled (for some reason) in France and bought and transported to the US, eventually ending up in the center of this Jesuit University. Nice, in its old world way. Worth a look, particularly for pre-Vatican Catholics who are into this kind of stuff

Located on the campus of Marquette University, this little chapel is steeped with history. Dismantled and transported from Europe and reassembled in Wisconsin! Interesting history and peaceful little place to relax and meditate.

This beautiful chapel is one of a kind in the United States. It is hundreds of years old and was purchased and moved to Marquette. Very knowledgeable volunteers at the chapel will tell you all about it and answer all questions.

Hard to find tucked behind university buildings on the Marquette campus. It is a tiny chapel where you feel like you are stepping back in time into a very special place as soon as you step inside.
