Saint Mary Roman Catholic Church
Canning installed and augmented the new Gothic Revival interior design scheme that references Catholic liturgy, traditional iconography, and a celebration of Saint Mary.
Location: Norwalk, CT
Original Architect: James Murphy
Style: Gothic Revival
Over the course of its first century, Saint Mary Roman Catholic Church had three separate, elaborate interior designs. And then, in the 1990s, the Church was painted off-white throughout.
Working with Duncan Stroik Architects, Canning provided a new decorative scheme that articulates the architecture, reflects a Marian theme and represents the finest historical, traditional liturgical design. The comprehensive project was completed in phases, one of which was the restoration of decoration in the transept, including a new plaster reredos.
