Time Loop

1958 ???



Actually, these are before (1968) and after (2008) series of photos from St. Theresa Catholic Church (Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston) thanks to the New Liturgical Movement Blog

I always feel bad for good Priests who inherit these ugly 80's Churches. Its great to see that there is still hope for some of them with a little renovation. Makes me wonder what will happen to the Cathedral if a good Bishop inherits the Archdiocese of LA.

Dr. Peter H. Wright said...

A splendid "Before" and "After".

A brief moan, not to be taken to seriously :

How is the priest going to celebrate "ad orientem" with those flowers on the floor in front of the altar.

Wouldn't the chairs look better placed sideways, facing the altar ?

No communion rails !

Otherwise, a very clever (and very lovely) transformation.

I love my church here, but it suffers from the same malady as the one we attended in Downingtown; it looks like Mike Brady designed it.

Joe of St. Thérèse said...

I'm hoping it's a staged renovation project where they add the altar rails later.
