St. Peter Faber, SJ
Peter traveled throughout Europe working in an interdenominational and interfaith context. He became adept in guiding others in The Spiritual Exercises and helping them develop their relationship with God. Peter, who was especially kind to the poor, once reflected that solid business approaches would help to alleviate social ills. In an article in the National Catholic Reporter in 2013, author Chris Lowney suggested Peter be considered the Patron Saint of Business.
The Chapel Cave
The Chapel Cave represents the cave in Manresa, Spain, where St. Ignatius of Loyola experienced great intimacy with God and received spiritual enlightenment on which he developed The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.
The Prayers and Petitions Wall
The Prayers and Petitions Wall, which contains dichroic glass to simulate votive candles, allows people to place prayers, intentions, and petitions in the slots along the wall and pray with the community of faith who gather in the chapel. If you are unable to visit the Chapel, you may complete this form and your prayer and/or petition will be added to the wall.
It is through the generosity of an anonymous donor that this sanctuary is available to enhance the spiritual well-being of students, staff, alumni, and friends of Creighton University.
