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."
