Twenty-five years in the making, Prince of Peace church is the new home to Catholics on the west side of Kearney, Neb. Led by RDG, the parish participated in the design process, preferring a traditional but simplified romanesque architecture.
The plan is a cruciform symbolizing the whole community, the Body of Christ. The artwork, which is integral to the architecture, drew upon the Beuronese style which has historical ties to the faith and to Nebraska as seen in the artwork of the state capital. From the image of Christ as Pantocrator to the angels which surround the assembly, visual expressions of liturgical truths are found throughout the church.
