CHAPEL OF ST. JOSEPH
Carmelite Sisters of the Divine Heart of Jesus | NORTHERN PROVINCE
Join us as we witness a beautiful chapel renovation prayer led by Carmelite Sister Anne Marie, head of this renovation, as she implores St. Joseph. This chapel is located within the Legacy at St. Joseph, an assisted living home in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and is dedicated to St. Joseph.
The goal of this renovation is to deepen meditation and honor the glory of God, St. Joseph, and the Holy Family through traditional classical liturgical design.
Considered to be a large chapel for an assisted living facility, the original design of this chapel dates back to the early 1960’s, when the original desire for a modernist architectural style was to connect with the contemporary world. Though this design approach often lacked the emotional connection to the beauty and mystery of the Catholic faith. This traditional renovation will change all that.

Chapel of St. Joseph Renovation Prayer
Dear, Saint Joseph,
Protector of the Holy Family.
We turn to you as the patron saint
of carpenters and builders.
We ask for your guidance and protection,
as we embark on the renovation
of this humble chapel in your honor.
Help us approach this project with love and grace,
And grant us the wisdom and skill,
to plan and execute the renovation with care.
May our work be a testament to your goodness,
And a source of awakening for all who enter,
Protect us from set-backs and delays,
And bless the hands of all who work on this project.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ.
This prayer was originated by Stephen S. Cascio, the liturgical designer to the project.
