This chapel is stunning on the outside from every direction and a modernist marvel on the inside, with great light from the skylight. Definitely a highlight of Houston for me!

Incredible ornate interior, beautifullly baroque. Went to a wedding there and was impressed with the Greek Orthodox ceremony.
