The Saint Augustine's Chapel
The Saint Augustine's Chapel was built by students with rock quarried on the campus grounds and completed in 1895. The first service was conducted during Christmas time. The Reverend Henry Beard Delany, who became Suffragan Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina and vice principal, led the construction of this building as a teacher of carpentry and masonry. To this day the Chapel is the focal point on campus for spiritual wellness and enrichment.
Saint Augustine is one of the most famous and influential theologians and writers of Western Christianity. He was a strong supporter of the poor and a defender of orthodox Christianity. His autobiographical work Confessions is a classic of western literature, and provides inspiration to anyone who strives to live a virtuous life. Augustine’s writings describe our dependency on God for the grace to live a holy life, and express our human longing for God. He states, “You arouse us so that praising you may bring us joy, because you have made us and drawn us to yourself, and our heart is unquiet until it rests in you” (Confessions, Book 1).
