Fun Chapel Facts
We broke ground for Chapel Dulcinea on January 1, 2005 and dedicated it on April 23, 2005. It was the first building completed on the Wizard Academy campus.
WHY APRIL 23? The most celebrated writer in Spanish literature, Miguel de Cervantes laid down his pen April 23, 1616 and quietly passed away simultaneously with William Shakespeare, the most celebrated writer in English literature. In a single sunset, these two great voices were silenced.
Shakespeare gave us Romeo and Juliet, a love story with a tragic ending, but Cervantes gave us Don Quixote, with its shimmering image of the feminine ideal, Dulcinea.
In 2011 we had 623 special events reserve Chapel Dulcinea. Congratulations to each and every one!
