The Chapels

The three Chapels of the Mariapolis Centre represent its essence, its significance.

Bishop Carlo De Ferrari Chapel

Bishop Carlo De Ferrari was the first bishop of Trent who believed in the birth and rapid development of Chiara Lubich’s charism. This chapel is dedicated to him and is located adjacent to the Marilen Hall.

The chapel is precious because of a statue of Our Lady conceived by Benedetto Pietrogrande which was sculptured by Peter Kostner.

J. Hanselmann Ecumenical Chapel

The Mariapolis Centre of Trent is defined by its specific character of ecumenism. Thus the Ecumenical Chapel next to Marilen Hall was conceived for this purpose, a place of service and prayer for persons of other Christian denominations.

This chapel is dedicated to Bishop J. Hanselmann, Lutheran bishop friend of the Focolare Movement.

Chapel amidst rocks

One section of the Mariapolis Centre is enriched by a small chapel embedded in the rocks. The glass window behind a small altar opens to a wall of rocks on which there is a metal crucifix, symbol of a simple but solid and rooted spirituality.
