I'd Best Warn You

At the end of the month, we'll be handing out the First Annual Lavish Praise, Faint Praise, and Scathing Condemnation Awards. These will recognize the best and worst of church design in the Toledo Diocese. Be nervous. Be very nervous.

Any comments regarding the visits they'll be making, ie, where they apparently plan to take their inspiration from?

Good and bad. All Saints, Rossford has a good exterior and a rotten interior. Corpus Christi has a few good artworks, but they need to tear it down and build a real church. The others are fairly good.
If they're clinging to old-fashioned nonsense like "in the round", I don't hold out much hope. The fact that they have to discuss where to put the tabernacle, instead of just doing what Summorum Pontificum says, makes me think they're stuck in a time warp thirty years ago just don't get it.
