Chapel Use and Reservations

CHAPEL USE GUIDELINES

Residence Hall Chapels can be reserved during the summer for Mass, prayer service, vespers, or adoration in the chapel to which your group is assigned.  It is recommended that you reserve a classroom auditorium in an academic building for orientations, talks, and seminars as they are not approved functions for hall chapels. 

We ask that you encourage your participants to respect the sacred space of our residence hall chapels. When your group has completed a liturgy, kindly return the sacristy to a clean and orderly fashion. If any items were damaged (song books, wax drips on carpet, etc), please notify the Hall Manager immediately so that it can be corrected before the next group arrives. Although chapels are air-conditioned, guests are never permitted to sleep in the chapels on warm nights. Your assistance in promoting the respectful use of our chapel space will ensure our ability in continuing to offer this service, which makes a Notre Dame residence hall a truly special place.


CHAPEL RESERVATIONS

Please submit completed chapel reservation form (available by clicking here) prior to May 2. For a reservation to be considered, a FOAPAL number must be provided as part of the reservation.

STANDARD CHAPEL SUPPLIES

Each chapel will typically have the following supplies on hand in the sacristy for celebration of the Eucharist: altar wine, altar breads, charcoal, incense, candles, linens, albs, vestments, sacramentary, lectionary, chalice, and communion cups.

The Hall Manager will take care of ordering supplies and keeping the sacristy stocked for summer reservations.


BILLING INFORMATION

The Basilica Sacristy Supply office will complete chapel billing at the conclusion of each summer. The costs are relative to the supplies needed for the frequency of your group's chapel use from May - August. Questions about pricing may be directed to Sacristy Supply at 631-5214.


CHAPEL CAPACITY, ACCESSIBILITY, AND SEATING

All chapels have standard capacities that are determined by pews or chairs. However, many chapels can accommodate an overflow capacity. It is the responsibility of each group to order the additional number of overflow chairs from General Services for the specified time they have reserved the chapel. Residence Hall Chapel Information can be found below.
