Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church

The Neo-Gothic church is of brick and cast stone accentuating the doorways and the vivid stained glass windows. The interior is articulated in an old-world feel with thirteen-foot-five-inch, “Jubilee Doors” to delineate the narthex from a baptismal pool area. Rich millwork, a wainscot of split-face block, scissor-trusses, a clerestory cupola and iron rood screen all work together to complete the aesthetic. The cherry pews provide seating for 760 parishioners while revealing little of modern technology and mechanical systems allowing the splendor of the space to remain pure and true to the catholic tradition.
