Good Shepherd, East Toledo

The dome contains sixteen windows, each with an apparently life-sized saint. The state of preservation, for the plaster, murals, and stencilling, is downright uncanny.

The Toledo Diocese is uncommonly well stocked with domes. Back in western Pennsylvania, I can't recall a single domed Catholic church between Pittsburgh and Altoona.

Pittsburgh has several and Altoona one.

I wonder if it could be an influence from Chicago, where they're called "Polish cathedral style"?
