Make a gift to support St. Joseph’s Adoration Chapel
The St. Joseph Adoration Chapel was funded entirely through donations and financial gifts. The small, timber-framed chapel is set among the soaring pine trees at the center of the Belmont Abbey College campus. The glass exterior walls create a feeling of being surrounded by a lush green forest. The alter, a gift from the Sisters of Mercy, was given after the chapel was completed in 2008. Providentially, sight unseen, the beautiful white marble altar with crucifix fit so perfectly that it looks as though the chapel was built around it. The alter was originally a gift given to the Sisters in 1908 for their hospital chapel in Charlotte. After the hospital was sold in 1995, the alter was returned to the Sisters and stored. It was later discovered that the donor of the alter had been a close personal friend of Abbot Leo Haid.
