    Tulsa In Ink Christ the King Church Coaster


    Product description

    The Church of Christ the King, Tulsa was dedicated by Bishop Francis C. Kelly in May of 1928, and was the first church in the world to be dedicated with the name “Christ the King.”, following the introduction of a Roman Catholic holy day of the same name.

    The brick exterior is accented with the use of beveled piers which like St. Patrick’s and St. Thomas the Apostle, de-emphasise the intersection of walls and gives the building a more completeness about its shape. Terra cotta ornamentation on the exterior, was designed by Alfonso Iannelli.

    he interior is amazing, particular to those familiar to Christ the King Turners Cross. The semi-octagonal shape of the sanctuary, communion rail and elevated altar are the exact building blocks used to realise the Turners Cross design. Christ the King Tulsa, was very obviously a first generation of this design. The ceiling consists of polished wood beams suspended to avoid the use of supporting pillars. The ceiling climaxes over the sanctuary and overall design completes the integration of the sanctuary and nave. This objective was a long standing goal of Byrne. The choir was positioned behind a slotted screen and elevated behind the altar. This location is today unused.

    Alfonso Iannelli designed the stained glass windows which were made by the Temple Art Glass Company of Chicago and today rank among the finest examples of stained glass in the US. The north side depicts kings of the New Testament, with the Old Testament Kings featured on the south side. Iannelli also made the statues of Joseph and Mary which stand on the side altars.

    The mosaic of Christ installed behind the altar, was designed by Emil Frei, Inc. Bruce Goff, a local Tulsa architect designed the mosaics of the two side altars.
