Our Greatest Churches

H. Russell Zimmermann writes in the December 2009 issue of Milwaukee Magazine on his picks for Milwaukee's 25 most beautiful and historically significant churches. Among them is St. John's Cathedral, with this concluding caveat.
In 2002, another major project was announced as “a glorious renovation” of the interior. The modernist design was derided as “a theater-in-the-round” and “too Protestant” by detractors. To me, the shockingly mismatched interior is a mistake. The archdiocese's most beloved edifice deserves a meaningful restoration to its original, richly ornamented interior.

I'm way ahead of him, having in 1997 "Received a thank you letter from the Very Rev. John H. Endejan for my contribution to the Cathedral Preservation Foundation."
