Chapel Usage Policy

Use of the Chapel is restricted to events that carry specific religious purposes.

“Religious purposes” is defined in two ways:

  1. Religious Services are those presided over by an ordained minister. For example: liturgies, worship services, weddings, and funerals. Marriage ceremonies in the Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel are limited to Catholics eligible to be married according to the Canon and liturgical laws of the Catholic Church.
  2. Of a Religious Nature describes events specifically designed as a religious experience. For example: prayer, bible, or religious study groups; music performances, readings, talks, or discussion groups focused on religious topics. 

Brescia reserves the right to reject any application or request for use at its sole discretion for any reason that may include, but is not limited to, events considered to be in conflict with the Catholic mission and intent of the University. Any questions regarding the acceptable use of the chapel will be decided by the President of the University.

Brescia must receive completed and signed application to reserve the chapel, plus payment for deposit and ½ of rental charges, before considered for approval. Sr. Pam Mueller, OSU, (270-686-4319) the University’s Sacristan, will coordinate use of the Chapel for campus purposes as well as for rentals.
