The room features ” sinks for ritual foot-washing,” as well as “separate areas for male and female worshippers, since Islamic tradition calls for different prayer areas for each sex.”

Matt Mahoney, the St. Ambrose senior who helped design the room, called the prayer space “outstanding.”

Let me guess without reading the article: Jesuits??

I suffered through some of the same nonsense at the University of Portland. The Jesuits are a poor excuse for a Catholic (fair warning, I am not a catholic).
