The Saint Joseph Memorial Chapel was constructed in 1922 and dedicated to the memory of the sons of Holy Cross killed in World War I. It was rededicated in 1946 to also honor the memory of the sons of Holy Cross killed in World War II, and once again in 1987 to the memory of the sons of Holy Cross who died in the Korean War and in the Vietnam War. Three wood-carved monuments located on the inside wall of the west narthex bear the names of those memorialized.
