The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology broke ground today on a close to three million dollar Chapel and Catholic center.
The proposed 'Catholic Newman Center' will be located at the corner of Kansas City Streets and Elm Street. The building will include a chapel, kitchen, 2 meeting rooms, offices and a social room. The project is scheduled to be complete at the end of June.
Father Michel Mulloy said this building will help students and faculty grow in their faith and much more.
"It's also going to be a place where students can come to experience a well-rounded understanding of who they are. Where they can get questions answered, where they can explore the options and possibilities for their lives," said Father Michel Mulloy.
Father Mulloy said they only need to raise about 200 thousand more dollars to have the project completely paid for.
