Creative Minority Report Part 2 - St. Paul the Apostle

Dr. Denis McNamara is faculty member and assistant director at the Liturgical Institute in Mundelein, IL, and featured the following on St. Paul the Apostle on the Creative Minority Report.  

Creative Minority Report

Last week I posted an introduction to the new St. Paul the Apostle Catholic church in Westerville, Ohio, just outside of Columbus. Its architect, David Meleca, has designed a number of classical and traditional churches over the last decade, and recently posted some new pictures on his blog. The church draws from several Romanesque traditions: Italian, German and the Richardsonian Romanesque.

One of the fine features of this church is its consistency of design, with furnishings designed and/or supervised by the architecture firm for quality control. This post will show the fine level of design and craft in the church's baptistery.
