The form of the church follows the example of early Roman basilicas, with a broad nave and a transept containing a baldachin over the altar. The structure will be built from solid masonry with extensive use of local salvaged brick for exterior trim. The timeless detailing derives from churches built in Western Europe in the first millennium — a universal style well suited to a modern Catholic church. Christian LeBlanc will serve as architect of record. Watercolor renderings and interior design contributions by Matthew Alderman.
