Architects Give International Honors for Church Design—and Many Winners are Catholic

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 01/01/16

From Faith & Form:

This year’s awards program was a landmark for the fact that 33 projects were selected for their outstanding quality—an unprecedented number. The sheer quantity of award-winning projects speaks to the overall quality of the submissions this year—nearly 130 projects were submitted from around the world.

And what are they looking for? You can read the guidelineshere.

For the 2015 awards, a sizable number are Catholic, including a place I visited three years ago, St. Monica’s in Dallas
