Description

The Midcentury Modern Christ the King Roman Catholic Church was completed in 1955. An architectural standout in the Beverly neighborhood, the church features a façade of clean-cut limestone blocks and gridded windows. An expansive brass-framed stained glass piece welcomes all who enter and bathes the nave in boldly-colored light. Interior details include intricately-painted imagery of Christ the King, some of it intended to look, from a distance, like mosaic tile. A bronze crucifix hangs above the altar of rich marble.
