The Norman simplicity of this buttressed brick church earned it a photographic spread in Architectural Record for January 1917. The architects, a New York firm, kept the elevations low in deference to the elegant residential neighborhood around Rosemount. The interior is rich in dark wood, from the open ceiling beams to the hand-carved choir screen and reredos with Biblical scenes. A complementary Neo-Norman church office and rectory next door at 410 West 18th Street has a steep-pitched roof and half-timbered entry with an oriel window. The garden includes a columbarium (1986) with brick wall art by Pueblo artist Kenneth Williams.
