The Friends of the Quarry Chapel have entered into a lease agreement with College Township, the owner of the Quarry Chapel, to assume management of the Quarry Chapel.

In addition to our mission to support our restoration, improvement and maintenance efforts, we will be responsible for scheduling events, including weddings, concerts and other functions associated with the Quarry Chapel.

The Quarry Chapel is a community asset and our Board members want to see it utilized. We have had a very positive response to our monthly concert series over the summer.  We currently have six weddings scheduled for next summer. We are open to suggestions from the community as to how we can accomplish this goal.

If you are interested in scheduling an event, have suggestions, comments or questions, please contact us at:
