St. Peter, Huron

For a modern church....the sanctuary is quite powerful to see in person. I get the feeling i'm in a pub or saloon or something with the light fixture above the altar. (has lights, and speakers in it)


There are some blinds spots of the alter in this church....


reminds me of some sort of military fort

Suffice it to say that when we were first considering a move from Virginia to this part of Ohio, Huron was quickly marked off the list.

Except for the resurrifix, I think it's fantastic. One of the best modern designs in the diocese.

I would have guessed mid-to-late 1950s or early 1960s.

I'd go with c1970. The arched wooden beams, stone walls, darker wood tones, and the style of the glass point that way.
When was it built?

According to Msg. Mossing's history of the Toldedo Diocese it was dedicated on November 30,1969.

Oh, what I wouldn't give for a set of Mossing.

The more I look at this, the more I like it.
The tabernacle's in the right place and the processional crucifix makes up for the resurrifix, which is extremely well made. Odd place for the ambo, though.

I attended this school and I remember the first mass held in 1969. I was in the first grade. Simply amazing how beautiful the church still is.
