‘Beauty will save the world’: check out these impressive church renovations

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 12/27/16

From The Christian Review: 

The latter half of the 20th century brought its share of poor church architectural design, moving away from the ornate splendor and magnificence of the cathedral, toward (in many instances) the sterile, bland, and nondescript. Fortunately, recent years have brought a renaissance in sacred architecture, with architects such as Duncan Stroik  and James McCrery designing a collection of beautifully-designed, traditional churches. That trend is also manifest in the growing number of traditional renovations recently, a number of which can be seen below.

Visit this page to see them all, including a notable one from Brooklyn.

Merry Christmas!
