The parish's interior renovations evolved from a dark and dimly-lit church. Lighting problems included no focus for the presentation areas (the pulpit, altar, and baptism font) and an overall poor illumination level in the nave. Specific tasks were: increasing general illumination levels; providing focused light for the presentation areas; and defining the form of the unique, octagonal room.
Along with the repainted interior, lighting brightens the space, revealing the stunning detail of crossing gothic and barrel vaults forming a Maltese cross. Lighting defines this form with light from a variety of sources and locations. Existing recessed fixtures were removed and replaced with eight recessed down-lights that provide general illumination. A parishioner designed and donated the new chandelier and wrought-iron sconces.
