West Bend, WI – There was a large turnout Sunday, February 26, 2023, for the blessing of the Adoration Chapel at St. Frances Cabrini. Rev. Nathan Reesman returned to the parish to preside over the ceremony and was joined by Rev. Harmon, Rev. Strand, Rev. Howard, Deacon Mark, and the adoration committee.
The Mary Queen of Angels Adoration Chapel was relocated in August 2021 from its long–time placement at Holy Angels Parish. Demolition the existing Saint Frances Cabrini sacristies started in October 2021 to accommodate the new chapel.
“I am so happy we have finally arrived at the opening and with a roster of regular
adorers that will allow the space to be used continually from Sunday evening through Saturday morning,” said Reesman.

All that said, the chapel is a lovely place to pray. I am amazed at the transformation that has taken place in that sector of the main church building in the past nine months. I want to thank the many volunteers who helped so much in the physical labor of this process.
I want to thank the Adoration Chapel committee for its leadership and shepherding of this relocation, especially for the crucial work of getting the adoration time slots
I want to thank Father Howard at Holy Angels for his great support, along with our other area pastors. I want to thank everyone who donated much needed funds toward this project. To date we raised a very impressive $108,000 in donations for the work.
I want to thank all the vendors and contractors, most especially Russ our campus maintenance director who has devoted months of working hours to this project. Thank you!
