North American Martyrs Catholic Church

Lincoln, Nebraska

North American Martyrs is one of the fasting growing parishes in Lincoln, Nebraska. The parish campus began with the building of its school in 1996. The 600-seat church, parish hall, and a six classroom addition to the school were completed in 2004.

The interior of the church employs the use of natural materials, primarily stone interior walls and a wood truss ceiling. Eight new stained glass windows were commissioned to line the nave. Each window depicts one of the North American Martyrs. To the left of the sanctuary is a side shrine dedicated to St. Kateri Tekakwitha, an Indian woman whose conversion and witness was born of the fruits of the Martyrs’ missionary work.

 

This project was commissioned and completed while at another firm.
