Beautiful, peaceful setting

Chapel sits in the middle of the Marquette campus. Had a wonderful tour and learned the history of the chapel. It seems so peaceful in a college setting.

Be sure to kiss the cold stone - kissed by JOA herself. A nice walk when visiting the Marquette campus. A hidden gem!!

This sweet little chapel only takes a few minutes to really see it, but you can definitely spend longer taking it all in. To imagine that there are stones and icons centuries old . . . and then imagine whose eyes rested on them centuries ago . . . it's a place worth your time in contemplation. It has a... More

I love history, especially when it is preserved through art and architecture. Though small it is charming in its detail. Come sit awhile and feel the ancient vibes

Oh, I love this tiny little chapel!!! I think they are open until 4pm daily, except during weddings and church service??? Definitely go check it out!!! On Marquette University grounds. Parking is tricky on the side streets. There is a parking lot near the interstate side for the public, but its quite a hike!!! You can also purchase with cash,... More

So long ago, so much a part of history. Tucked into Marquette Univ. campus between more modern taller buildings, it is a genuinely reflective piece of history. Built in France, attended by Joan of Arc in the 15th century, dismantled and rebuilt on Long Island, N.Y. In 1920's then relocated to Milwaukee, it is a must see for everyone/anyone. The... More

How cool is it to have this chapel in downtown Milwaukee!!!??? It is somewhat humble, but for history buffs ( or especially religious history buffs) this is a must see!

Lovely little church on the Marquette campus. Website has the history if interested. Attended Mass and felt very peaceful and inviting. Do look at the outside as well - the bricks were hand laid upon reconstruction. The inside is a must-see, with original architecture and pieces.

Magnificent building from the outside, set back on the site of the university. Unfortunately, we arrived too late to be able to visit it inside.

The chapel is located a short walk from Gesu on the Marquette University campus and definitely worth taking some time to visit. As the chapel is located behind other buildings, there is no immediate parking however what does one expect as this is downtown in a major city so a short walk should not be a big deal. It is...
