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