Marquette High's new classrooms and chapel not only provide state-of-the-art facilities for education and worship, but also provide more room to house the Marquette High spirit.
Photos of the new chapel have been noticeably absent from these mailings. From what I've seen of it pictured elsewhere, it is an example of the state of the art. Blame my high school education, perhaps, but I don't hold that there is inevitably only progress in the state of an art, liturgical architecture for example.
The new chapel finally replaces the chapel that was renovated into other uses some decades ago, after the school ended mandatory daily Mass. It's named the Three Holy Companions Chapel after St. Ignatius Loyola, St. Francis Xavier, and Blessed Peter Favre. The report says (p. 7) that they
became known as the nucleus of the Society of Jesus, just as the chapel will serve as a core to our community.
If it's an analogy, I'd have expected it to say the chapel is the, not a, core of the community. Of course, that would mean the community had been without it's physical core for decades, which might be a bit downbeat for a fundraising letter in the form of an annual report. It's back in some form; that's progress.
