Choir stallsToday in League HistoryDecember 11, 1997—League Director Joe Scheidler retrieves some old choir stalls from a barn in Iowa for the St. Joseph Chapel, under construction at the League’s offices on Chicago’s northwest side. League staffer Penny Kleiner hunted down the stalls, which had been in storage since the renovation of the Trappist Monastery of Our Lady of New Melleray in Dubuque, which she had attended at one time. One of the barns in which the old chapel effects were stored had burned down, but not the barn holding the beautifully crafted choir stalls, which would return to daily use in the League chapel.
