-David Klise, 1953
Designed by Cincinnati architect Edward Schulte and constructed under the leadership of Msgr. Ambrose Burke, Christ the King Chapel on the St. Ambrose University campus was first dedicated on December 2, 1953.
Speaking at the dedication Mass, Samuel Cardinal Stritch, Archbishop of Chicago, said that the Chapel "proclaims the whole reason for the existence of this institution."
Having undergone extensive renovation throughout the design of Gossen-Livingston Architects in Wichita, Kansas, and its re-dedication in 2006, Christ the King Chapel remains the center of faith life for the St. Ambrose community. From its soaring stained glass windows to the locally crafted altar, ambo, and tabernacle, the Chapel reflects the faith of the many people who have passed through its doors.
