Casa Jesus, Chicago, IL

About This Project

Casa Jesus/Bishop Abramowicz Seminary is a House of Formation/Discernment for Hispanic and Polish men who feel called to the priesthood. Formerly a convent building for nuns serving the Holy Name Cathedral Parish, the three-story building was renovated to provide the required dormitories, study rooms, offices, recreational areas, dining rooms, and kitchen facilities. Several residential units were reconfigured into new suites for the rectors and the existing chapel was renovated with new interior finishes and lighting. The building was made handicap accessible with the addition of an elevator and handicap lift, and new MEP systems were installed throughout the building.
