St. Joseph Church in Plymouth, Ohio, is one of the more distinctive mid-century modern designs in the Diocese. It is the work of Cincinnati architect Edward J. Schulte, who designed more than 88 churches in a career that spanned from 1921 to 1967. His work reflects the changing trends in art and architecture during that period; he assisted in designing St. Meinrad Abbey, much different than his later works.
