Facts

  • Prior to construction, the congregation wanted a more elaborate design. However, budgetary constraints forced a less costly but more daring design by leaving the structural concrete exposed and employing simple decorative elements.
  • The interior of the church features the enormous, glass mosaic altarpiece of Christ the King.
  • The great bell tower of St. Joseph's rises 225 feet high and demonstrates the art deco skyscraper idiom that the architect's employed previously in the Seattle (or Northern Light) Tower
