Additional observations  Queen of Life Chapel was established by Catholic philanthropist Tim Busch.  It’s located in a business park not far from the Orange County airport.  It is a quaint chapel, with traditional art and a pious community.  Busch is a successful businessman who supports Catholic apostolates, including the Magis Center of Reason and Faith, Napa Institute, and Legatus.  He founded two Catholic schools in southern Orange County, JSerra Catholic High School and St. Anne Catholic Elementary School.  He’s a committed Catholic who has used his considerable professional talents to spread the message of the Gospel.  If you go to Mass, you’ll see him assisting at the altar and serving as a Eucharistic minister.
