Bonus images from Holy Family Church:

1. Another image of those vibrant stained-glass windows.

2 & 3. Holy Family may have been completed in 1965, but it still has some great lettering with strong art moderne style and even perhaps some hints of art deco.

4. This shrine to Mother Teresa is one of three along the east wall of the sanctuary. Above them is a highly stylized frieze representing the Stations of the Cross in glazed ceramic.

5. The front door of the neighboring rectory, which reflects the modernist details of the main building, but in more restrained details and materials. Some of the details — look, for example, at the elongated rhombuses — seem to have a Space Age feel.

6. One more look at that incredible stained glass.

Perhaps the best feature of Holy Family Church is the garden in the courtyard between the sanctuary and the rectory — an oasis of green and quiet in the midst of the concrete, glass, and steel skyscrapers of East Midtown.

The stained glass is some of the most vibrant and richly colored that I have seen so far in my visits to houses of worship in New York City.

The modern, abstract design is just as thorough on the interior as it is on the exterior. A large depiction of Jesus with arms outstretched rises above the altar and greets worshippers as they enter the sanctuary.

Week 16: Holy Family Church, Manhattan
This ultramodern church was completed in 1965 just a block from the headquarters of the United Nations and serves the multilingual international diplomatic community around the U.N. complex.

If you have been keeping up, yes, it has been a while since my last 52-in-52 post. My wife and I, with our three children, moved about a month ago. We are still in New York City, but the preparation for the move — and the recovery and settling in after — didn’t leave me with much time to visit and post. I will be playing catch-up over the summer.
