More than one purpose

The Chapel accommodates Mass for thirty regular attendees on a daily basis and has seasonal functions that can draw more attendees. The hospital also seeks to serve other faiths and has spaces for non-Catholic Christians and non-Christian Abrahamic faiths.

This church is not only modern in faith and religion but also displays modern church architecture, as this beautiful pivot door displays. These spaces also accommodate different types of imagery, from figural Catholic to non-figural Muslim.

Modern church architecture

In this modern church architecture, the three main spiritual spaces are organized to be accessed from a single gathering space, the Narthex.

 

A future phase will include a healing garden and the west façade of the Chapel has been designed to establish a strong visual connection to this future garden.

 

Whatever the future may hold for the St. Mary Chapel, the stunning pivoting chapel door will be there to witness the developments of the chapel. FritsJurgens pivot hinge systems are tested to last at least 1 million opening and closing movements; the equivalent of 125 years of (daily) usage.
