St. Olaf Catholic Church, Minneapolis, MN

This church in downtown Minneapolis is by local firm Thorshov and Cerny, who did numerous buildings throughout the Twin Cities and nurtured a generation of architects. The building dates from 1955, replacing the previous church which burned down in 1953.  The facade is clad in a local stone, Mankato-Kasota. The dark interior is decorated with stunning colored glass.
