Choir Chapel

The Choir Chapel, built in 1900, is the heart of the monastic community. The community gathers several times daily in this chapel. The choir stalls face each other to facilitate the singing of the Liturgy of the Hours in choirs. Retreatants, college students, Atchison neighbors and other guests often join the community for prayer. The windows, designed by Emil Frei Studio in St. Louis, tell the story of St. Benedict and depict aspects of his Rule for the monastic life.
