On Marquette University’s campus in Wisconsin, you’ll find a fairly ordinary looking chapel dedicated to St. Joan of Arc.

But looks can be deceiving. This chapel actually has three amazing things about it:

First, it contains a stone on which St. Joan of Arc may have personally prayed. That makes the stone a third class relic.

Second, it was originally built in France in the 15th century and moved to Wisconsin at a later date.

And third, since Mass is still offered there several times a week, it is the oldest structure in the western hemisphere still used for its original purpose.

This video explains the incredible story:
