St. Patrick, Warehouse District

I'm not sure which saint this is. Aloysius? John Berchmanns? Does anyone know?
It's good to see a parish that retained its knowledge of mathematics in the "less is more" period of the late 20th century. It's quite likely that St. Patrick's has more statues than any parish in Toledo. There are at least twelve on the altars and shrines, plus this one and its counterpart ( St. Therese of Lisieux ) on the other side of the back, plus the four Evangelists in the vestibule. There seem to be more on the sides of the choir loft, as well.

I do not known firsthand, but I've heard St. Hedwig or St. Adalbert (one of the two) also has quite a large number of statues in the church.
