The Abbey and University Church was designed for a diverse group of congregants consisting of the population of the local parish, Benedictine monks, students of various schools, and visitors. The church design was based on a trapezoid shape so that all of those present could engage in a participation in church services. The bell tower stands 112 feet tall and holds five bells calling the parishioners to services. Watch this video on Youtube.
