This church was a ground up construction in 1960 with A. Lanzini and Sons helped develop the architectural design of exterior which includes a magnificent 19’ tall mosaic of Our Lady of Refuge on the front of church. We did the entire interior including pews.
On the interior side of wall is a 19’ original mural of St. Cecilia.
All marble, stained glass and 30’ reredose behind altar depicting a hand carved corpus and magnificently carved surround with a beautifully carved hanging baldacchino. The hand carved stations of the cross and statues throughout the church.
