A chapel in Washington dedicated to Blessed Josemaria

Cardinal James Hickey, until a few months ago Archbishop of Washington, blessed a chapel dedicated to Blessed Josemaria Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei, during a Mass celebrated on September 14. The chapel is located in the Catholic Information Center of the Washington Archdiocese.

Cardinal Hickey said that the Catholic Information Center is “a place for evangelization, catechesis and spiritual renewal.” He stressed that the work carried out at the center represents “a resource to find the truth in the midst of the city. The people who come here are really seeking information on how to gain salvation and attain holiness.”

Among the participants in the ceremony were the chapel’s architect, Henry H. Menzies, and the artist, Dony MacManus, who sculpted the bronze statues of the founder of Opus Dei and of St. Catherine of Siena located at either side of the altar.
