Church of the Week: Guesthouse Chapel, St. Meinrad Archabbey

On a recent prayer retreat at St. Meinrad Archabbey in south-central Indiana, the lovely Robin and I joined our fellow retreatants for a time of worship in the guesthouse chapel, sensitively led by the retreat director, our friend Kasey (Warren) Hitt.
The chapel, while much less elaborate and far more modern than most of the other spaces in the archabbey (though architecturally consistent with the guesthouse design), is nonetheless a beautiful place, thoroughly conducive to quiet and meditation. The acoustics allow a human voice to be heard throughout the room (which seats seventy or so quite comfortably, and could seat more). 
Over the weekend I saw at various times a single nun and a small group of nuns using the space. I re-entered myself for a few moments, and enjoyed its quiet and calm.
