      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      The oval entry at the bottom of the photo leads to the martyerium. It is surmounted by an altar for contemporary worship. Above that is the 12th century choir and Baldanquin with gold crown and angels standing over the high altar.
    • 90 foot doors opening to the drive-in church 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
      The doors opened the Crystal Cathedral to the drive-in congregation which preferred to worship from their cars. Here we see Dr. Schuller addressing the drive-in congregation from his pulpit.
    • A congregant

    • A fitting finale 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
      The 52 bell carillon is named after Arvella Schuller, the pastor's wife.
    • A peripatetic minister 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
      The use of the jumbotrons allowed Schuller to occasionally follow the then popular fashion of the minister moving about as close as possible to the congregation.
    • After worship 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
      In the right lower middle range, note the photographers still at work for the Hour of Power.

    • Altar/table and tapestry 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Influenced by the liturgical renewal that later had such an impact on Vatican II the altar/table is indeed a table in appearance.
    • Altar/table, font, and pulpit 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      From the baptismal font in the foreground, right, one sees the altar on the axis of the church. A pulpit is on the left.

    • Ancillary building 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      At a short distance from the chapel are the bunker-like facilities for pilgrims and housing for clerics, alleviated only by the grass roof and colored abstractions.
    • The Annunciation 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Set in a panel in the glass wall is a traditional but far more expensive stained glass interpretation of the Annunciation.
    • Another interior view 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      The slightly separated weekday chapel with the Madonna is to the left.
    • Approach to the main entry 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      The simplicity of the painted steel framing becomes evermore apparent as one approaches. The influence of Mies van der Rohe is apparent.
    • Approach to the Piuskirche 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      The main church room can be reached by the ascending steps from the street whereas the crypt underneath it can be entered directly from the downward side of the slope.
