Blessed Sacrament Chapel
St. Dominic

The current Blessed Sacrament Chapel to the right of the Sanctuary was originally the Sisters' Chapel in honor of the Sisters of St. Dominic who have been a part of the Parish of St. Agnes since 1917.  When the current Cathedral building was constructed this chapel was reserved for use by the Dominican Sisters.  The tabernacle was relocated from the high altar to this chapel as part of the renovations of 1981.

A large tracery window depicting five events in the life of St. Dominic can be found in the chapel.  These events include The Raising of Cardinal Stephen's Nephew, Trial by Fire, Commission to Preach, and The Dream of Pope Innocent III.  Above these is St. Dominic Receives the Rosary 

St. Dominic Guzman was born in Spain in 1170.  He died in 1221.  He was a staunch defender of the faith and founder of the Order of Preachers commonly referred to as the Dominicans.  

St. Dominic's Feast Day is August 8th
