  • The chapel is located on the UP campus across from the Cathedral of Learning. When I went, someone was playing the pipe organ. The stain glass has amazing detail and characters in American History.....  more

  • Nice quick visit to the Chapel - free and accessible. If you look at the details of the beautiful 73 foot stained glass windows, you'll see they're not the typical saints or Biblical scenes but secular figures like George Washington, Bach and other historical figures.
  • Our wedding ceremony at Heinz Chapel was truly stunning. The space is one-of-a-kind and spectacular, and from the moment we toured it, we knew we had to get married there! The planning process with Wendy was so easy, and Sharon, our ceremony coordinator, was so organized and enthusiastic. She made sure to deal with every single difference in our ceremony with grace and elegance – from uneven numbers of bridesmaids and groomsmen, to my brother (a groomsmen) escorting bridesmaids to where they would stand and running to the back of the church to walk me down the aisle, to an a cappella group singing in the middle of the ceremony. We are so pleased with our experience with their team. Our wedding was also on a Friday, so we did not feel rushed out of the space at all. The best part of the whole day was that the garden right next to the chapel, which has been under construction since last year when we booked the space, opened specially on our wedding day. We were the first couple who was able to take pictures in the garden, which made it incredibly intimate. We loved our experience! Photo credit to Meredith McKee Photography!
