The Feast of the Annunciation, one of the principal feasts of the Christian church, is celebrated on March 25 (Lady Day), nine months before Christmas. The first authentic allusions to the feast (apart from the Gelasian and Gregorian sacramentaries, in both of which it is mentioned) are in acts of the Council of Toledo (656) and of the Trullan Council (692). Because its significance is much more than narrative, the Annunciation had a particularly important place in the arts and church decoration of the early Christian and medieval periods and in the devotional art of the Renaissance and Baroque.

The Chapel of the Annunciation at Assumption University of Thailand

The Chapel of the Annunciation is the Assumption University Chapel, located at Hua Mak Campus. Rev. Bro. Prathip Martin Komolmas, President, had it constructed in 1984 with the contribution of 80,000 DM by MISSIO, Germany. Its cornerstone was blessed by Pope John Paul II in May 1984 on the occasion of his memorable visit to Thailand.

His Eminence Michael Cardinal Meechai Kijboonchu consecrated this chapel on 22nd September 1984. It is used for religious functions, a place for prayer and meditation of faculty members and students and the faithful in the neighborhood, including non- Christian students who may frequent it for prayer.

The Chapel is beautifully decorated with stain-glasses. On the right front is the picture of St. Gabriel and Mary at the Annunciation, the name of the Chapel. On the left front is the portrait of St. Louis Marie Grignon de Montfort, founder of the Brothers of St. Gabriel Congregation. Both are stain-glasses imported from Italy. Other stain-glasses at both sides are the Via Crucis, coat-of-arm of the faculties of the University, story from the Bible, contact with the Thai Monarchy of the Brothers of St. Gabriel, and the initiative of the Brothers in education in Thailand. The stain-glasses are realized by Thai artists, and made in Thailand.

At present, the chapel is frequented by the faithful and catholic students of all universities in the neighborhood. It is under the pastoral care of two Salesian priests, in the capacity of parish priest and assistant to the parish priest.
