The new seminary’s chapel is included within the main structure of the seminary building, allowing easy and constant access for the seminarians.

Religious art, donated by the parents of Msgr. James Ribble and originally featured in the old seminary dining room, has been installed in the new seminary.

The new seminary’s cornerstone includes publications and other records pertaining to the facility’s construction.

A statue of the Blessed Mother, a gift from the Poor Clare Sisters and refurbished by the Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Church, has a prominent place in the new seminary.
