Chapel Duc in Altum

Chapel Duc in Altum

View looking north northwest at the entrance to the chapel called "Duc in Altum."  This is Latin for the words of Jesus addressed to Peter as recorded in Luke 5:4 where, after preaching from his boat, He tells him to "Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch."

After a large catch, the boat began to sink, Peter and his partners left all behind to follow Jesus—to become "fishers of men' (5:10).   The chapel is a call for present day followers of Jesus to become "fishers of men."
