"The chapel dominates the space with its spiral tower shape. Inside the chapel is a stained glass window by French designer Gabriel Loire (1904-1996)."


"The Chapel of Thanksgiving is the spiritual center of Thanks-Giving Square open to visitors of all faiths. The spiraling shape rises 90 feet above street level, suggesting the infinite upward reach of the human spirit.

The Chapel’s design takes its inspiration from the Great Mosque in Samarra, Iraq and the ancient spiral of life. The entrance to the chapel is at the end of a 125-foot bridge that runs over a cascading waterfall.

The chapel ceiling contains the stained glass "Glory Window", one of largest horizontally mounted stained-glass pieces in the world. The 73 panels of faceted glass were designed by Gabriel Loire of Chartres, France featuring warmer and brighter colors as the spiral reaches its apex in the center. Above the entry door is the etched glass window "The Spirit of Thanksgiving," designed by glass engraver John Hutton."
