Magdalen Chapel

Throughout its history, La Roche University in the northern suburbs of Pittsburgh has maintained a deep and abiding commitment to the belief that spirituality is central to all of life’s activities. With the dedication of Magdalen Chapel in 1990, the College established a permanent site for worship and contemplation.

 From the outset, the chapel was envisioned to be a place of reflection and celebration that is symbolic of spiritual inquiry and understanding. Its prominent location on the campus is indicative of the University’s commitment to the spiritual values of community, worship and justice.

In the years following the Chapel’s dedication, La Roche University experienced significant growth. With growth comes change. The growth and change visible within the University are also evident in its permanent worship space.
