St. Joan of Arc

I've been thinking about this one a lot lately. At first glance, the design is a bit jarring. The more I look at it, however, the more inclined I am to consider it one of the best products of its time. Someday, when the weather and my health cooperate, I'll go take pictures.

The interior has some good features - it's not visually plain. Nice stained glass. There is also a smaller side chapel used for daily Mass, I think it has a tableau of statues of Our Lady of Fatima appearing to the children.

Jeffrey, usually your architectural tastes and mine are pretty similar. But first impressions have a way of seeing accurately things that thinking obscure.

Actually, I remember my first impression on seeing it from a bus. Just one word. "Interesting."
