St. Anthony Catholic Church – Harlingen

New Sanctuary


This unique floor plan places the pews around the altar
on three sides. This brings the parishioners forward for a
closer view of the altar. Regional forms and materials
accent the design. Those accents include arched
colonnades, bell tower, tile roofs, ceramic tile and rough
sawn rafters.

A full immersion baptistery is included in the design. The
Sanctuary design includes “state of the art” audio and
visual equipment.
