House Chapel

In the early part of the 20th century, the Order of Preachers was headed by Fr. Hyacinth Cormier. He was regarded as a very holy man and beatified by Bl. Pope John Paul II. Among his many works, he labored for the building up of the Dominican University in Rome, known as the Angelicum. However, after his term as Master he lived here at San Clemente, and died in his room here in 1916. That room is now a chapel, and the place we celebrate Mass privately. It is where I celebrate Mass most days.

We also still have the altar set Bl. Hyacinth used when he was here.

Behind the altar set are pictures of the chapel when it was Bl. Hyacinth's room.
