Caldwell Chapel (dedicated in 1888 as St. Paul's Chapel) is located in Caldwell Hall, mezzanine level, and is the original chapel of The Catholic University of America. Daily Mass is held in Caldwell Chapel at 5:10 p.m. for the University community. The chapel seats 70 to 80 adults comfortably. It is not air conditioned. The Odell pipe organ (New York, 1889) is the original, and is in need of renovation and repair. Persons wishing to use this instrument must speak with the Associate Campus Minister for Liturgy and Worship. Because of the chapel's location, we regret to say that it is not handicapped accessible. In addition, there is no dressing area for a bridal party. The chapel is equipped with Gather Comprehensive hymnals and the accompaniment books (keyboard and guitar).
