Enjoy the Wonders of Our Brentwood Campus

Our campus has an exciting history for both its design and use. A pine tree lined road leads into open grounds designed by Frederick Law Olmsted in the late 1800s.  The remaining landscape still shows evidence of Olmsted’s original design in the avenues, promenades, sweeping roadways and curves that are still present. Fields that had once supplied the Sisters and boarding students with fresh vegetables and provided pasture for cows, still surround the buildings and some of the land has been restored to agriculture. Newly planted meadows and native plants enhance the natural beauty. It is a place reflecting reverence for creation, a respect for all earth's creatures and a commitment to sustainable living.

Sacred Heart Chapel, Brentwood NY

Sacred Heart Chapel was dedicated on April 18, 1933. The chapel is considered one of the most beautiful chapels of its kind. It was the dreamt of Mother Mary Louis who envisioned a space of serenity and beauty where women could pray. The walls which are made of fawn colored sandstone are complemented by green colored marble columns from Italy and amber marble walls from Spain. The alabaster windows are the only ones of their kind in the United States. They were carved in Italy and were tinted to give a soft amber glow. Carved panels on the upper level depict only.
