Chapels of Mercy Home: Tichenor Chapel

Chapels of Mercy Home: Tichenor Chapel

Nestled at the entrance of Mercy Home for Boys & Girls, right off the courtyard, is the Tichenor Family Chapel. Completed in 2005, this chapel is a fairly recent addition to our West Loop Campus.

This sanctuary was a gift from longtime donors Art and Marj Tichenor. The Tichenors hoped that this beautiful place of worship would serve as a reminder that our children, both at Mercy Home and beyond, are helped through prayer.

Designed by architect and Mercy Home Board of Regents member Jim Curtin of Solomon, Cordwell Buenz & Associates, the chapel features a vaulted copper roof and water-themed stained glass windows. These stunning windows were designed by the renowned Botti Studios, who also restored both the Tiffany dome at the Chicago Cultural Center and the Fullerton Hall Tiffany dome at the Art Institute of Chicago.

It is also Mercy Home’s smallest chapel, seating only 16 people, and providing an intimate, quiet space for prayer and reflection.

The formal dedication of the Tichenor Family Chapel marked the conclusion of a large expansion project at Mercy Home. This expansion, which began in 2002, doubled the capacity of our West Loop campus and allowed for extended services for our young men.
