You would think they could find a saint or Bible scene to convey the same message.

It’s a beautiful work. But it’s as far from “brutalist” modern as anything could possibly be.

No doubt the new Catholic Cathedral in Los Angeles doesn’t look like a church, but the one in Portage is in a class by itself. In additon to being ugly, it was non-functional. (It originally contained the bishop’s offices, but they moved out to more suitable space several years ago. )

Our former ECUSA parish had a Schoenstein.

It was a nice organ, but the "worship space" was built in the 60s, just like the Ugliest Cathedral in the World . . . so the acoustics naturally are hideous. Even a gaggle of acoustic engineers couldn't do much with it.

We remodeled a 50’s era space. The problem is that the music folks were in charge. Great acoustics now for music, but the room is too live for the sermons. So now they are spending another bundle of money to try to fix that problem.
