Sacred Heart of Jesus, pierced through by the soldiers lance; heal Fr. Terra

Sacred Heart of Jesus, out of which flowed blood and water, convert the murderer of Fr. Walker and all sinners, just as You converted the Centurion that pierced your heart on Calvary.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, Your kingdom come.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, we trust in your love.

New Church for the FSSP in Chesapeake Virginia

The new church of St. Benedict Chapel in Chesapeake will be blessed and dedicated on Saturday, March 5, by Bishop Francis X. DiLorenzo at 10:00 a.m.

Father Neal Nichols, chaplain, will be the main celebrant of Mass according to the Liturgical Book of 1962 Latin Mass (Tridentine Latin Mass) immediately following.

Built at a cost of $2.5 million, the new chapel was designed by Franck & Lohsen Architects of Washington, D.C., a firm which specializes in Catholic church architecture.

Arthur Lohsen, the principal architect, describes the chapel “as a treasure for the Tidewater area and a sacred space where one is immediately moved toward the Divine.”

Design Architect Michael Franck says the chapel has Roman arches, circular windows at the choir and sanctuary, and brick detailing at the parapet and niche. All elements echo the historical, local vernacular of architecture dating back over 200 years.

Upon entering the chapel, which seats 300, parishioners encounter a small, monochromatically painted narthex which then leads to an expansive, high-vaulted and richly decorated nave.

New stained glass windows share the walls with antique Stations of the Cross. Highly detailed millwork in the nave honors the neoclassical detailing traditionally found in Tidewater churches.

A hint of gothic architecture at the choir and at the sanctuary forms a backdrop for an antique high altar and side altars, as well as an antique marble communion rail. High atop a rood beam rests an antique crucifixion scene illuminated from a new stained glass rose window.

The chapel of St. Benedict started in September 1991 with only 90 parishioners. Worshipping in a small farmhouse-converted chapel, the parish has grown to over 400 members, with the average age of parishioners in their late 20s with many young families.

As the parish increased, it quickly outgrew the worship space, and the faithful approached Bishop DiLorenzo for permission to build a new chapel.

Many of the architectural and planning details were developed by Father Kevin Willis, the first priest assigned by the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter as Chaplain to St. Benedict in February of 2006, in collaboration with Dr. Denis McNamara, Architectural Historian at Mundelein Seminary, and liturgical consultant on the project.

In addition to Father Neal Nichols, St. Benedict Chapel is also staffed by Father Peter Byrne of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter.
