  • Jesuit High opens new Chapel of the Holy Cross, a 'sermon in brick and stone' — For more than two years, students, faculty and staff have watched workers turn bricks and columns into a soaring architectural work at the center of Jesuit High School’s 40-acre Tampa campus. On Tuesday, more than 500 people turned out for the culmination of the work — the dedication of the new Chapel of the Holy Cross, where students enrolled at the Roman Catholic all-boys school will attend their daily convocations and where Mass and sacraments will be celebrated. Designed by Duncan Stroik, architecture professor at the University of Notre Dame, the 900-seat octagonal chapel features a brick exterior, original sculptures and limestone columns reminiscent of Renaissance cathedrals.
