When the original St. Paul’s Catholic Church, in the Carpenter Gothic style, was built in the late 19th century, it was the first Catholic church in the area. Eventually the structure was demolished for a new building, which the parish outgrew. The objective in the construction of a new church was to optimize the pastoral setting and to create a house of worship that would serve its community for posterity. The hilltop location references the original St. Paul’s and the new church exudes a graceful simplicity, with country Gothic details and a bell tower. The interior design focuses on the Catholic liturgy with great attention and detail to elements within the sanctuary, including the altar rail, decorative ironwork and devotional shrines to Our Lady of Guadalupe and the Infant of Prague.
