St Luke's in St. Paul
"One of the city's outstanding parish churches, a free interpretation of French and Italian Romanesque. The facade has elaborately carved portals, the largest of which depicts Christ and various saints...Above the main portal is a spectacular rose window set within a pattern frame." (AIA Guide to the Twin Cities by Larry Millett, p451). I don't have a picture of the rose window, but I'll go back and photograph that and the inside of the church soon. The church was completed in 1925. For a close-up of the front door and a photo of another door in the church, click here. Thanks to Isabella for her comment yesterday, which is now the title of this post.
