Built by and dedicated to those who served
The chapel cornerstone was laid in 1920, with construction guided by World War I veterans seeking to honor the many alumni who lost their lives in the war. Flags along the sides of the chapel represent United States allies in World War I, and a central flag memorializes the cadets who served in World War II. In 1998, the chapel was renamed Noble Victory Memorial Chapel of St. John the Divine in recognition of the Noble Foundation’s donation for chapel restorations.
In the transcendent beauty of our Chapel, students, faculty and staff, as well as parents and members of the community gather to pray and worship. St. John’s Northwestern students are afforded the opportunity to participate in the acolyte program they assist in services led by our Chaplain, a Priest in the Anglican Church in North America. Chapel services include Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, and weekly Holy Eucharist. All services are from the Book of Common Prayer, 2019. Chapel services are public, and visitors are most welcome.
