Database Manager on November 27, 2019:

The church planned to erect a tall Gothic Moderne church with towering flèche, but then the stock market crashed and the Depression began. Plans were suspended, and the parish moved forward with only the lower portion of the planned sanctuary and a community house, as designed by Springsteen & Goldhammer and built in 1935. The upper sanctuary and rectory were never constructed.
