Items from the Chapel of the St. Paul Seminary

Basilica of St. Mary, Minneapolis. 

Would be nice to see these items returned to the main chapel of the St. Paul Seminary, from whence they were taken in the 1980s.

The turpitude of the postconciliar chapel renovation of the SPS has been lamented for years.  Would be nice to see it rectified.  It will likely take a big name donor to step forward.

  1. The statues of the angels in the choir actually came from Sacred Heart Chapel at the College of Saint Benedict in Saint Joseph, Minnesota. There they held the baldachin over the high altar before that chapel, like Saint Mary’s Chapel at the Saint Paul Seminary, was destroyed in a 1980s wreck-o-vation.
