Campaign Update - STM Chapel

We are scheduled to break ground on the Chapel at St. Thomas More on Thursday, September 24.

As of February 2020, we are excited to announce that we will break ground this summer on the Chapel at St. Thomas More. We are grateful for the support of our donors and to all who have reserved naming opportunities and joined the St. Thomas More Chapel Society. If you or someone you know would like to be a part of this historical time by making a donation, purchasing a naming opportunity or becoming a member of the Chapel Society please contact Anne Pitre at (337) 988-3700 Ext 126 or via email at anne.pitre@stmcougars.net.

The deadline for naming opportunities or to become a member of the chapel society is March 13, 2020.

As of November 2019, we are three-fourths of the way to our fundraising goal needed to complete the STM Chapel. The new chapel will be a dedicated space for Jesus and will sit prominently at the front of the school.  Inspired after the church where St. Thomas More worshiped, the chapel will stand as the cornerstone to our deep-rooted faith. 

Recently, Bishop Deshotel and Fr. Russo unveiled the renderings of the new chapel to our STM community.  Thanks to the generous support of people like you, we are expecting to break ground in the summer of 2020.


"I'm excited to have a new chapel because I need a quiet place to go and think about my life and what God wants for me."   ~ Jake Chiasson, Class of 2021

"Thank you for your donation to our new chapel! The chapel will provide a more reverent and proper place for the Eucharist to rest. As someone who likes to use the chapel throughout the day, having a quiet space will make prayer life much better."  ~ Alex Stefanski, Class of 2020
