The St. Joseph's Chapel at the School Sisters of St. Francis is one of the featured locations of Doors Open Milwaukee 2012.
Milwaukee church architects Peter Brust and Richard Philipp were commissioned to create St. Joseph Chapel in the Italian Romanesque Revival style. Construction began in 1913 and the completed chapel was consecrated March 19, 1917. It is 200 feet long, 90 feet wide at its greatest breadth, and the dome rises 70 feet above the sanctuary. The chapel is illuminated by 115 stained glass windows from Austria. A breathtaking chapel of perpetual adoration is located directly behind the main chapel. The adjacent Alfons Gallery features artwork by sisters and others.
