The Chapel Fund

About the Chapel Project

St. John Fisher College is planning to build a chapel adjacent to Kearney Hall, creating a new focal point for the campus. The new chapel will serve as a tribute to the Basilian Fathers and will reinforce the College's commitment to the tradition of Catholic education.

More information is available in our booklet, A Tribute to Our Past: Building a Chapel at St. John Fisher College [pdf].

Rendering of the future St. Basil Chapel

"As a deacon in the Rochester diocese and an alumnus of St. John Fisher College, I feel the chapel is a testament to our Basilian heritage, and a symbol of our commitment. Please join me in supporting this transformative and faith-affirming campus project."
