Opened in August 2022, the Jesuit Center is the home for the Jesuits who work at SLU. Our Lady Seat of Wisdom chapel is open to the public weekdays, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. The crucifix holds a 19th century British representation of the crucified Christ, carved in walnut, surmounted by the placard ordered by Pontius Pilate – Jesus of Nazareth King of the Jews – written in Greek, Latin and Hebrew.
The image of Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom was commissioned by a SLU donor and installed in the Fall of 2022. At the request of the Jesuit community, the artist painted the mantel worn by the Blessed Virgin Mary, SLU blue.
