  • RPI Chapel + Cultural Center turns 50

    On April 27, the Chapel and Cultural Center (C+CC) on the campus of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy took a trip to Italy in celebration of the building’s 50th anniversary. Wine, coffee and sparkling water, along with garlic bread, salad and lasagna were served to eager diners at tables in the C+CC’s main auditorium.

    The dinner looked like a delicious Italian feast, a celebration of a milestone year in the building’s history. What wasn’t as apparent was that the same space at RPI is the home of Christ Sun of Justice parish.
