CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

If you have driven on Highway 77 in Calallen, you might have wondered what the new church under construction is for.

The Pax Christi Sisters Order broke ground for its new liturgical retreat center in 2010 and the facility will be opened in May.

Reporter Sarah Acosta got a first time look inside the chapel that is still under construction during 3 News First Edition.

From the ceiling painted like the heavens to the three doorways in the entrance, every detail was planned with a meaning behind it.

Fifty feet above the altar is a dome that has murals all around it. The Retreat Coordinator, Leanna Castro explained the meaning behind the art, especially why the founding sisters are included.
