Our Lady of the Rosary: A Guide

Welcome to the interactive tour. We’ve tried to include all the information you need and references to all our generous donors and patrons who helped make this beautiful church possible.

Our New Church

At last, after many years of waiting, prayer, and sacrifice, the new Our Lady of the Rosary church has been dedicated. Our new church is more than just a building. It is a sign and symbol of the beautiful, good and true work that God is doing in many ways in our parish.

The Upper Church

The new Our Lady of the Rosary Church was inspired by the Romanesque church of Saint Antimo in Tuscany, Italy. The Romanesque style of architecture is from the early Christian period between Roman and Gothic styles. Romanesque is known for its simplicity, dignity and austerity. It is therefore also a style of architecture suited for a modern age. As a Catholic church, it connects us with our history and traditions from 21st century United States right back to ancient Rome.

Church Exterior

The courtyard of the church provides an interim, peaceful space as we enter from the busy, fast paced world.


The narthex is the place of welcome and information for those seeking to enter the church.

Baptismal Font

The marble font was salvaged from the church of St. Mary, Morning Star in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

Infant of Prague Shrine

The shrine to the Infant of Prague is also our pro-life shrine, a place of quiet prayer for our children, the unborn, and women in crisis.


The nave of the church is the central location of worship. All is focused on the altar where the divine sacrifice is offered.

Stained Glass Windows

Over fifty windows were salvaged from the church of St. Mary, Morning Star in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. 


The statuary in the church is a mixture of salvaged and restored antiques, new mass produced statues, and original commissions.

Stations of the Cross

The antique stations of the cross were in the old church and were professionally restored and repaired by Anja Zunkeler.

Altar and Baldacchino

The high altar and canopy (baldacchino) are the focal points for the whole interior.


The North and South transepts provide a cruciform design to the church and feature alabaster-type windows.


The pipe organ was salvaged from a Baptist church in Alabama and installed by the Wicks company.


The sacristy is the area for storage and preparation for the celebration of Mass.


A Church is not simply a building. The Church is the Body of Christ composed of all the baptized members.

Worshipping together at Mass the Body of Christ come to pray, learn and participate in the memorial of Christ’s death and resurrection, and then to receive the body and blood of Christ given for our salvation.

The Lower Church

The Lower Church is a quiet location for prayer and the celebration of daily Mass. It also holds our Divine Mercy Shrine, a small bookstore, and the columbarium where the ashes of our loved ones are interred.

The Altar

The wooden altar and tabernacle plinth were brought from the old church keeping a sense of continuity with the worship there over the years.

Statuary and Relics

The statuary in the lower church is a blend of new statues, original commissions and restored antiques.

Stations of the Cross

The mosaic Stations of the Cross were salvaged and restored to provide simple devotional icons.

Stained Glass Windows

The five stained glass windows in the lower church were also salvaged from St. Mary, Morning Star in Pittsfield. 

Shrine of Divine Mercy

The Lower Church features the image of the Divine Mercy--a resurrection image which is suitable to be displayed in the midst of the columbarium. 

The Church in Liturgy

The Church is not an empty building, a museum or an art gallery. It comes alive as the liturgy comes alive; the liturgy is a living worship of Jesus Christ, crucified, risen, ascended, and glorified for our salvation and the salvation of the whole world.
