The start of the new chapel construction project at Scecina Memorial High School is another step in the Our Faith, Our Journey, Our Time capital campaign.

Demolition started May 31, shortly after the last day of school. The goal is to open the new chapel in fall 2022. The chapel was designed by entheos Architects in concert with Scecina leadership and was approved by Archbishop Charles C. Thompson of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.

Wurster Construction is the construction manager for the project. Demolition started on two rooms on the main floor that previously housed the Scecina Spirit Shop and the staff workroom. The wall between the rooms is being removed to create the new chapel space. Scecina’s current chapel is located in St. Francis Hall. The new Scecina chapel will have seating for 125-130 people and will be located in the heart of the school building in the main hall. Efforts are underway to relocate the Spirit Shop and staff workroom.

The pledge total for Scecina’s Our Faith, Our Journey, Our Time capital campaign stands at $7.26 million. Another capital campaign project, a new weight-training room on Scecina’s lower level, is completed and used daily by students and athletes.

Groundbreaking for two more capital campaign projects, a new main entrance, and athletic and activity fields, is tentatively planned for fall 2022.

Scecina also is funding Academic Excellence and Facilities endowments through the capital campaign
