St. Patrick's Church won the Gold Medal in tim annual Spaeth- Lercaro Architectural Competi- tion, the largest national eofnpe- tition for chur..h architecture in the country. The medal was accepted by ar- chitect Robert Lawton Jones of the Murray-Jones-Murray firm of Tulsa. Okla., at the 12 Liturgi- cal Week here. A $'/50 cash award was also presented. Second prize, $200 and the Car- dinal Lercaro Silver Medal, went to Marcel Brer for St. John's Abbey C h u r c h, Collegeville, Minn. Four honorable mentions were made in the cGmoetition spon- sored by the North American Liturgical Conference in coopera- tion with the American Institute of Architects and the nation's major C a t h o I i c architectural schools. Honorable mentions went to Murray-Jones-Murray, f o r St. Peter and Paul Church, Tulsa; Pietro Belluschi for the Ports- mouth Priory, Portsmouth, R.I.; the Cerny Association for the Church of St. Anthony, Superior. Wis., and Lawrence and Saunders for Corpus Christi Chapel, St. Benedict, La. The winning structure, St. Pat- rick's, was built in two years by more than 500 men and some 40 women. Each evening and all day Saturday, the parishioners painted, laid a stone floor, made pews, did woodwork, landscaped and constructed molds for heroic-size bas-relief angels on the inside walls. St. Patrick's has a poured con- crete exterior. The inside walls feature heroic-size bas-relief an- gels. The place of worship itself is enclosed in transparent walls in a "glass core" surrounded bar a wide court. The altar faces the congregation. The architectural awards are jointly named for Mr. and Mrs. Otto Spaet', of New York City, pioneers in promotion of good liturgi=al art, and Giacomo Cardinal Lercaro, Archbishop of Bologna, who organized in 1955 the first Naqonal Congress of Sacred Architecture in Italy. Articles and plates on the win- ning churches will be published in "New Liturgical Art", a book being published by Helicon Press, Baltimore, Md. FELIX CAMPANELLA, co-chalrman with Rev. Edward Boyle of the Art Exhibit for Litur- gical Week, takes a close look at one of the most unique of the art displays. It is a set of actual cemetery gates designed by Brother Bruno, O.S.B., of St. Martin's Abbey, Olympia, Wash. The gates measure eight and a half feet by five feet eight inches and are constructed of metal. Mr. Campanella, a Seattle architect, here examines one of the angels forming part of the gates. ,, i I I The Judson Studio Arment0 Architectural Arts 200 South Avenue 66, Los Angeles 42, California ,, 237 L Delavan Ave., Buffalo8, New York
