St. Thomas More University Chapel

Norman, OK

A new Catholic Student Center is under construction to serve the University of Oklahoma Norman campus. The new chapel designed by Krittenbrink Architecture replaces a modern church and is informed by a collegiate Gothic sensibility.

Working collaboratively with St. Thomas More Catholic Student Center’s design team, Cooper Project Advisors, and Krittenbrink Architecture, EverGreene developed a liturgical artistry program featuring faux tapestries  of Our Lady of Walsingham, St. Thomas More, St. George, St. Joseph (inspired by architecture of the patron saint’s period), the communion of saints (including English Martyrs), and trompe l’oeil tracery on the sanctuary wall. With these elements combined, the new chapel will invite contemplation of a life of dedication for St. Thomas More University’s student body and staff.
