This church has the austere vertical massing and tall narrow windows set into plain walls that became popular for churches in the postWorld War II years. The contrast of random rubble for the lower walls, cream-colored brick for the upper walls, and limestone trim provides exterior enrichment. While the design is modern, the square tower and elongated louvered cupola are traditional elements.
