St. Bonaventure Church
DIOCESE OF PITTSBURGH
St. Bonaventure Parish was designed to emphasize movement. A number of design elements reinforce a strong central axis focused upon the high altar, the reredos and apse-shaped sanctuary that frame the altar, and the raised dias. The organic imagery found in the writings of St. Bonaventure is communicated through the iconography in the stained glass windows that encircle the Nave and Sanctuary.
