Sanctuary of the Divine Mercy

Chicago, Illinois

Designed for the Saint Stanislaus Catholic Church

Sanctuary compound from the west with entrance loggia in foreground Situated along the Kennedy Expressway and next to the great Church of Saint Stanislaus Kostka, the Sanctuary of the Divine Mercy of Christ is conceived as a major setting in the Archdiocese for penitential, devotional and adorational prayer. The centralized arrangement of the Sanctuary is inspired from Early Christian architecture and is designed as a votive offering in gratitude for Christ’s immeasurable Mercy. The Sanctuary’s internal rotunda is preceded outside by a “nave” two stories in height that surrounds a large prayer garden with Stations of the Cross, fountains and gardens.

Commissioned by the Reverend Anthony Bus, C.R., Pastor.

Thank you for the excellent architectural work that you did in the creation of the Chapel of the Sacred Heart of Jesus for the Cathedral of Saint Joseph. As you know, the chapel won several awards and has been featured in various Catholic publications. It is really a magnificent Eucharistic chapel and the work is excellent. Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson, Archbishop
