Br. Antonio Moscheni

The St.Aloysius College Chapel, an architectural gem, comparable with the Sistine chapel in Rome, is situated on Lighthouse Hill. The special beauty of the chapel is the wonderful series of paintings that virtually cover every inch of the interior roof and walls executed by the artist Br. Antonio Moscheni trained in Italy. The Church was built in the year 1899-1900.

 The Chapel Interiors

The central row of paintings on the ceiling depicts the life of Aloysius Gonzaga to whom this College and Chapel is dedicated. This young man who gave his life in the service of others is given as a model to the 5,000 young people studying on this campus.

Aloysius had everything that a young man of his age desires. He had wealth, power and influence. But he gave them up in order to serve others, especially the most needy. Our students are asked to imbibe his spirit of service.
