InSPIREd Sunday - Holy Apostles

I spotted this church from the air when landing at Pangborn Aiport in East Wenatchee, Washington last month. I was curious because it was round, at least the main sanctuary was. While unique in shape, it reminded me of an old water tank that was re-purposed into a church. I doubt that is the case but I found the church to be rather cold feeling from the exterior. I guess is it not really my style of architecture.

Holy Apostles Catholic Church - East Wenatchee, Washington

Another View - Even Starker in Appearance (Hence the water tank feel)

Linking up with the InSPIREd Sunday meme.


  1. i can totally see why you made that comparison. :) perhaps it has great acoustics.

  2. It is rather a strange looking church. Perhaps, Tex is right about the acoustics.

  3. this is an interesting and unusual church

  4. I could tell it was a Catholic church before I read that it was!

  5. I like a good steeple on a church! ;-)

  6. The church is too modern for me!
    But beautiful photos!

  7. Agree! Usually don't mind modern architecture, but this one leaves me cold. We have a mega huge church here in Louisville that's the same both inside and out. A friend said when she visited it kept expecting the peanuts and popcorn guys to come by! Utility is fine, but beauty more important in this kind of architecture.
