The church, constructed of face brick and
limestone trim in beautiful Romanesque
style, is one of the most outstanding
edifices in this part of Massachusetts.
It is dressed in front by a monumental
Milford Pink Granite staircase. The main
doors are constructed of heavy oak and
are finished in an antique tone. The high
Lombard tower can be seen by outlying
distances. The unique tower, flanked by
flying buttresses and arches, creates an
impressive landmark in this area.
The roof of the church and tower is of
Mission tile in a variegated red blend that
harmonizes with the brick walls. The
original church bell is now on display in
the parking lot of the church. The church
measures approximately 53' wide at the
front, 86' wide at the rear and 200' long.
The interior of the church was
beautifully designed decorative
stone and plaster with richly
colored marble wainscoting and
trim throughout. The floors and
accents are of imported Italian
marble tile. The conservation of
space accomplished by the
elimination of interior columns
is quite a departure from the
usual churches, thus affording
sufficient lighting through the
large stained glass windows.
The supporting trusses are
without cords so that they do not
detract from the fullness of the
entire richly ornamented, vaulted
ceiling and the elaborately designed sanctuary is visible from all parts of the church. The Stations of the Cross are executed in a special
stone, lighted and expertly detailed. The pews are of selected white oak and pine. The onfessionals are
fitted in recess and are also of white oak. The choir loft affords much space for our splendid pipe organ can
accommodate a 60-member choir.
The church stands today as a
monument of the love of God,
the dedication of those who
envisioned its beginning and to
those who, over the years, have
continued to nurture and to help
it grow and prosper for the glory
of God. It stands proudly today,
100 years since its founding.
