St. Pius X Church
St. Pius X Church was part of a growing Roman Catholic community near Granger, IN needed to expand to accommodate their congregation. EverGreene designed and installed new murals and liturgical artwork for their new sanctuary that can seat up to 1,300 people. Design work began by meeting with the committee and architects, studying the architecture of the building, and researching the ecclesiastical precedent of Lombardy, St. Pius’ home.
The original artwork includes:
- A celestial pattern on the sanctuary dome and inscription
- A mural on the triumphal arch tympanum featuring Christ flanked by angels and 12 sheep, above the communion of saints and murals of St. Peter and St. Pius X in the style of mosaics
- Medallions of the apostles on each clerestory bay and the transept received 12 lunettes featuring stags drinking from the waters of Christ
- Stenciling, faux quoining and Petrine symbolism throughout the church
