New Jesuit Chapel To Be Built At Loyola New Orleans

Most Holy Name of Jesus Church
Local architecture firm Holly and Smith has been chosen to design Loyola University New Orlean's new  8 million dollar Jesuit Center. The firm has been based out of Hammond for the last thirty years and recently opened an office in New Orleans. Holly and Smith architects have worked on numerous academic, governmental, commercial and religious institutions across southeast Louisiana. Projects similar to Loyola's Jesuit Center include Fayard Hall at Southeastern Louisiana University and the redesign of the interior of the Saint Scholastica Academy Chapel in Covington.
The Tom Benson Jesuit Center will serve as the center for spiritual life on Loyola's campus, addressing all facets of what it means to be a Jesuit and Catholic university.  
One plan is to use part of the building to house the department of Mission and Ministry. It will also be home to a new chapel on campus.

The picture shown in this article is the Most Holy Name of Jesus Church, not the St. Ignatius Chapel. The St. Ignatius Chapel is located on Loyola's campus in Bobet Hall. said...

It's all erroneous the thing you are saying.
