This structure was an 8 Wonders finalist in the Architecture category. Built in 1963 by George Pitcher and Company, the church is probably the only triple-roof, lattice-type, hyperbolic paraboloid church in the world. This shape always produces a pair of hyperbolas by slicing the shell horizontally and a parabola by slicing it vertically.


With a seating capacity of 475 and 6,000 square feet of floor space, there is no obstruction to the altar’s view from any point in the church, and the continuous stain glass windows render the entering light kaleidoscopic.
Mass times:  Sunday - 9 a.m. in English and 11 a.m. in Spanish, Holy Days as annouced.
