The spectacular worship space of this new 1,200-seat sanctuary is complemented by 17,400 square feet of four-color epoxy terrazzo. Natural light illuminates the simple, clean design of the seamless floor.  Rich, deep, classic colors were chosen to reinforce the architecture and harmonize with the marble, woodwork, and stained glass.  A multicolor octagon showcases the baptismal font.  The focal point of the project is a quatrefoil-shape medallion in nine colors with lilies and a carpenter’s square, symbolic of the church’s patron saint.
