Our Lady of Belen Chapel

The Our Lady of Belen Chapel was dedicated in a special Mass celebrated by the Most Rev. Thomas Wenski, Archbishop of Miami, on May 1, 2022.

“Belen’s commitment to our 天主教 identity is now unmistakable to anyone who drives by our school,”他说。. 威利. “The Our Lady of Belen Chapel is a clear expression of the promise made to every parent of the school that we are a 天主教, Jesuit school above all else. We strive for our students to become good 天主教-Jesuit men of faith who will actively contribute to the community. 像这样, it is without a doubt that the most significant construction project in Belen’s history in Miami is the Our Lady of Belen Chapel.”

The over 14-thousand square foot chapel, located on the southeast corner of the school, seats 638. The chapel is designed by Belen alumnus from the class of 1974, architect Jorge Hernández. 

Greeting everyone outside the chapel is the Alma Mater statue in the rotunda. Inside the nave are ten side niches (five on each side) featuring paintings representing Jesuit saints from the Americas (5 from North America and five from Latin America) by Spanish artist Raúl Berzosa. In addition to the portraits, the chapel also includes specially commissioned artwork in the form of the ambo, 坛, 还有洗礼池. There is an image of Saint Ignatius of Loyola as one approaches the 坛 on the right and an image of Saint Francis Xavier as one approaches the 坛 on the left, representing two of the founders of the Society of Jesus.

Belen Jesuit Preparatory School was founded in 1854 in Havana, Cuba by Queen Isabel II of Spain.  The task of educating students was assigned to the priests and brothers of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), whose teaching tradition is synonymous with academic excellence and 精神上的 discipline.  In 1961, the new political regime of Cuba confiscated the School property and expelled the Jesuit faculty.  The School was re-established in Miami the same year, and over the next decade, continued to grow.  今天, Belen Jesuit sits on a 30-acre site in western Dade County, only minutes away from downtown Miami.
