The Catholic Church of the Holy Spirit in Lubbock, Texas is a remarkable example of postmodern architecture. The renowned Heimsath Architects and MWM Architects joined forces to create a cruciform church with a tile roof that pays homage to Spanish colonial, Romanesque, Lombard and Texas Tech stylistic themes. The entrance portals to the church and the parish house are framed by cast stone frontispieces that are simplified and regionalized versions of Spanish architecture. The bell tower located at the back of the ship is also a nod to this style.
Inside the church, visitors will be amazed by the round “Creation window”, a “Jesus and the Children” window, panels with symbols and six windows featuring important saints related to the Catholic Church of the Holy Spirit. The architecture of the Catholic Church of the Holy Spirit in Lubbock is an exquisite combination of traditional and modern styles that pays tribute to its rich history.
