St Charles Church Examples


Recent examples of cruciform plan church renovations

St Joseph's Restoration Project - As well as completing, the sanctuary wall, restoring the high altar, protecting all the stained glass windows, improving physical access, increasing the seating capacity, plans including stablising the front steps.

Ever Ancient, Ever New: New Missouri Church Builds on Tradition - Adoremus Bulletin Adoremus: Society for the Renewal of the Sacred Liturgy Vol. V, No. 7: October 1999 Father Alex Anderson

Opposition to and criticisms of recent renovations

Vatican Opposes Church Renovation - In a surprising, public disclosure, the Vatican has notified Milwaukee's diocese that plans to radically renovate a cathedral would violate church law.

The Renovation Manipulation: Church Counter Renovation Handbook - $12.95 + ($2.95 shipping and handling)

St. Martin of Tours Church, Cheviot, Oh. - The parishioners were led to believe through a video and fancy brochure, that the fund drive was to restore painting, plastering and woodwork in the church and build a "Parish Center" (essentially a gymnasium).

Church Renovation or Restoration? - The future of sacred architecture depends on a rediscovery of both architecture and the sacred. And while there is a great hunger today for both, and legitimate movements seeking these goals, they are pursuing them at this time separately. It is the Church alone who, in seizing the moment, can reunite architecture and the transcendent. A new springtime in the Church's life will produce a new church architecture of great vitality and spirituality.
