St. Roch’s Roman Catholic Church

The flowering trees in front of St. Roch could not have better ornamented the delicate flamboyent Gothic ornament of the red brick and limestone Roman Catholic edifice.

I often feel like I’m reporting on another parish closing but St. Roch is doing great, and has an active and healthy school attached to it.

The front door is stained wood, which, when I think about it, is not something that I see very often.

I know I’ve seen the European inspiration for this tower somewhere, but I don’t remember where exactly. Perhaps the New Church of Deflt? It sort of looks like it, with the top spire removed, but I can’t place it.

The aforementioned school building was clearly designed along with the church.

While there’s a Modernist addition to the east.
