About Magdalen

Virtual Tour of Campus

The College of Saint Mary Magdalen campus occupies 135 acres of pine and hardwood forest, open fields, gravel footpaths, and stone walls that are remnants of late nineteenth century farms. The buildings and layout of the campus are designed as a traditional New England village.

1. Our Lady, Queen of Apostles Chapel

Our Lady, Queen of Apostles Chapel is the center of campus life. Built of red brick, with New Hampshire granite capstones that symbolize the four marks of the Church, the Chapel is a place of worship. Its simple and reverent design, with colorful faceted-glass windows, mosaic Stations of the Cross, and a near life-size crucifix directly above the tabernacle, helps to focus a worshipper's attention on Christ the Lord who is truly present. The Eucharistic Sacrifice is offered daily, and Benediction, Scripture meditations, and rosary take place on a regular basis.
