  • Campion Center (Weston College) (Keith Morgan)

Originally situated on approximately 200 acres, Weston College, a Jesuit seminary built in Flemish-bond red brick with limestone trim, served the educational, spiritual, and recreational needs of three hundred students. The central pavilion of the E-shaped plan contains the chapel, with a curved limestone apse lavishly decorated with classical ornament—composite pilasters, swags, balustrade, and urns. Pale pastel windows by Earle Sanborn and the limewood Stations of the Cross by Angelo Lualdi mitigate the cool reticence of the marble and stone interior of the chapel, dedicated to the Holy Spirit. Charles D. Maginnis was awarded a number of important commissions for the Jesuit Order, beginning with the English Gothic campus for Boston College (1909) in Newton (NW2).
