If you have never been to Holy Childhood, it is located at the corner of Midway Parkway and Pascal, between Como Park and the Minnesota State Fair. It is a modern brown brick structure built in 1956 by Hills, Gilbertson, and Hayes. The stain glass windows are the work of Max Ingrand, a leading French artist. Inside the Church, the statutes of our Lord, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Risen Christ, St. Joseph, and the Holy Family were created by Peter Lupori, a local artist and professor at the College of St. Catherine. The Stations of the Cross, mounted on the north wall are in earth tone terra cotta.
