The chapel at the Rensselaer Care Center

Several months ago I attended a service at the chapel in the Rensselaer Care Center. Until that day I had not realized that there was a chapel at the Rensselaer Care Center. I still know almost nothing about it.
Apparently much of the decoration of the chapel was inspired by one of the Care Center residents. She got people to donate the pews and the stain-glass window. She has also contributed a number of statues and angels. The one on the wall in the picture above is matched by one over the chapel door.
The decoration has a make-shift look to it. The tapestry of Da Vinci's last supper is one of the more striking images.
