Our Lady of Memorial Chapel Will Be Front and Center
We are pleased to announce plans for a new designated prayer
and worship space for the sacramental benefit of the
entire Catholic Memorial High School family.
We seek to raise $750,000 by Fall 2016 as the
final capstone to the Crusading for Excellence Campaign!
Capstone to a Magnificent Accomplishment
The addition of the new Our Lady of Memorial Chapel is the final “ta-da” moment of the Crusading for Excellence Campaign. Together we have successfully raised over $10 million.
This campaign capstone is what our effort has been about all along… a celebration of Catholic high school education in Waukesha County. The chapel itself reflects this in both the spiritual and physical sense.
To put the final touches on this momentous accomplishment, we seek to raise $750,000 before fall in 2016. Upon reaching $10.8 million, we will ensure the completion of this most sacred space. It will highlight an exceptional environment to form disciples.
Living Our Mission
By putting the chapel front and center on our campus, this project showcases our commitment to the Gospel, the Eucharist and each other. As part of the Catholic Memorial High School community, we are called to develop our Catholic faith and serve our greater communities. Through prayer and action, Catholic Memorial High School is a place where students receive a values-rich education as we fulfill our mission to educate, guide, and prepare students to serve the Church and the world.

Some unique elements to note are:
- Statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary (on the left) currently being displayed in the school's Our Lady of the Rosary Chapel. It was donated in 1954 and will continue to be displayed in the new chapel.
- Octagonal Shape to remind us that the dome of Heaven reaches down to meet the Earth in the Sacrament which we celebrate.
- Stations of the Cross that currently hang in the Our Lady of the Rosary Chapel and will find a new home in Our Lady of Memorial Chapel.
- Altar and Holy Water Fonts made of Aurisina Italian Marble and holding the relics of Saints Modestinus and Innocentia. These important keepsakes were donated in 1962 and will be relocated to the new chapel.
