A senior living center, St. Therese of Corcoran, in Corcoran, will be completed in the next 18 months, and a chapel for residents and visitors will begin to take shape.
St. Thérèse officials recently sought guidance on chapels from the Archdiocese of St. Paul and the Archdiocese of Minneapolis. Father Tom Margevicius, director of worship, and Sister Benedictine of St. Paul’s Abbey, St. Paul, met Marie He Hujan.
In December, Father Margevicius assisted the staff of St. Teresa and the architectural team of the Papal Design Group, based in St. Paul, in discussing details of the chapel, including the tabernacle, statues, artwork and the Stations of the Cross. rice field.
Father Margevisius said he was appointed by Archbishop Bernard Hebda as a priest of worship to lead all Catholic parishes, schools, institutions, clergy and laity to the celebration of the liturgy. Its wide range of tasks include providing advice on building and remodeling new chapels and churches, and suggesting musical options.
“The Archbishop counts on me to voice his wishes on how the Liturgy should best be celebrated in our Archdiocese,” said Father Margevicius. “Consequently, when I meet Saint Thérèse of Corcoran, I can act in a consultative manner and proceed with confidence that the design of the chapel is in accord with the direction of the Church and the wishes of the Archbishop. I made it.”
Father Margevicius said he enjoyed the assembly and was confident that the chapel would be “worthy of the sacred liturgy and suitable for the spiritual and physical needs of its members”.
In November, Sister Marie gave the team a tour of St. Paul’s Abbey Chapel and told them about the sacristy and artist renderings of Corcoran Chapel. Sister Marie participated in the groundbreaking of St. bottom.
St. Therese also operates senior living facilities in Woodbury, Brooklyn Park and Shoreview.
