Francis C. Schroen, SJ, (1857–1924)[1] was a Jesuit brother and interior designer principally of Roman Catholic institutional chapels built by the Society of Jesus.

He designed for the Jesuit Georgetown University Dahlgren Chapel of the Sacred Heart (1892-1893). He also designed the 1900 chapel of Loyola School, which featured the stained glass by Louis C. Tiffany and a white marble altar of his own design below a canopied statue of Our Lady of Lourdes by the New York-sculptor Joseph Sibbel.[1]
