While supporters of the project have their own specialized reasons to engage because of their backgrounds in classical architecture or civic enterprise, the central fact of St. Gerard’s will always be that this beautiful building exists for the worship of God unbound by time or space.
The Archbishop of Atlanta, the Most Reverend Wilton Daniel Gregory, has lent his approval and support to the project because it will enter its second century fulfilling its original purpose as a Catholic church.
The new Archbishop of New York, the Most Reverend Timothy Dolan, calls the project a “unique and innovative initiative.”
It invites ready comparison with foundations like the Brompton Oratory in London and the Church of St. John Cantius in Chicago. The commodious structure with its splendid appointments provides unusually rich opportunities for daily expressions of faith in liturgy, art and music.
Moving across the miles and years, it brings with it new opportunities for the Church in north Georgia – a beautiful, strong structure emblematic of the faith, an extraordinary place of worship for believers and a destination point for earnest seekers of all kinds.
