Long Awaited Dedication of Querbes Hall and Fine Arts Facilities Draws Chicago Archbishop

Archbishop Blase Cupich will make his second visit to Saint Viator High School this year, when he arrives Sunday to dedicate the new Fr. Louis Querbes Hall, a college-style dining facility, and the completed renovation of its fine arts facilities.

The $3 million, 2,794 square foot addition took nearly one year to complete, and includes a multi-media enabled dining hall, large enough to seat 400 students, while doubling the fine arts space, with acoustically designed band and choral areas, as well as a new visual arts center, with the latest in 3D technology.

“This is an incredible time for Saint Viator High School,” said Fr. Corey Brost, CSV, president. “With the completion of these projects, we are able to provide students with everything they need to thrive, for generations to come.”


The transformational project is the culminating piece of the school’s Shaping the Future with Faith Campaign, a four-year, $14 million undertaking, with major building improvements and an increased endowment fund, all made possible by generous donors.

Plans for the building improvements began four years ago, as the school community celebrated its 50th anniversary at a formal gala on Chicago’s Navy Pier. That night, the Clerics of St. Viator made a $3 million donation that served to jumpstart the capital campaign and underscore their support for the high school and its mission.
