Shown above is a photo of the new chapel of the Nashville Dominicans recently completed by architects Franck Lohsen McCrery of Washington, D.C., a truly magnificent new interior. I found this image through the new Society of St. Barbara, a blog started up by John Powers of the Bricks and Mortar Foundation, and dedicated to church architecture and church tourism with a particular Chicago beat. I've been invited to join as a contributor to the site, and while I can't match Mr. Powers's zeal--and talent for finding spiffy photographs--I'll definitely add what I can to the mix. No fear, though--you'll still see just as much of me here at The Shrine as always!

More info on the St. Cecilia Congregation's chapel--computer animations and preliminary sketches--and other intriguing projects from FLM can be found here, including studies for new mosaics at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
