Campus Chapel in Need of Repairs

Since it was built in the late 19th century, Manhattan College has proudly shown the Chapel of De La Salle to prospective students and parents. Recently, however, students who frequent the chapel have noticed caution tape wrapped around a number of the pews inside. During this year’s Fall Convocation, which was held in the chapel, a few students even found drywall atop their seats in the pews.

“I have so many good memories there. It’s disheartening to see that not everybody cares about the chapel as much as I do,” she said.

In the meantime, Matthew McManness, vice president of finance and chief financial officer of Manhattan College, is the process of getting estimates on the repair of the roof, facade and parapet. Hopefully, this will remove any of the water issues in the chapel.

Once estimates are received, we can count on some progress for De La Salle.

“Work will begin as safely and as soon as possible,” McManness confirmed.
