Renovation Highlight

One of the most interesting and attractive new architectural features at Old St. Patrick Oratory is the newly built narthex wall. Previously in the church there was not a divider between the entrance and the nave. The new wall is beautifully designed and built with superior woods and finished in a rich, dark walnut stain. There are three sets of swinging doors from the vestibule into the church. Above each set of two doors are large etched glass panels, each containing a crest. Shown in the above photo is the crest of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest. Other panels feature the personal crest of Bishop Robert Finn and the crest of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph.
