St. Theresa Catholic Church Main Sanctuary Tour


Saturday, February 25, 2017

St. Theresa Catholic Church and the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation coordinated informative tours of the William F. Cody-designed sanctuary. The 1968 edifice is considered one of Cody's "masterworks" and the architect reportedly expended much time and creative effort on the commission. The church is in remarkably original condition and many of the interior elements designed by Cody remain intact. Tourgoers received an excerpt from PSPF's 2004 out-of-print tribute journal The Architecture of William F. Cody: A Desert Retrospective. In September of 2016, St. Theresa Catholic Church received a historic preservation grant from PSPF to help defray costs associated with the main sanctuary's exterior rehabilitation.
