The 6 Ugliest Rich Churches in Houston
And some of them turn out very ugly.
We're not talking about churches who don't have much money -- or who choose to spend what money they have on something other than architecture. We don't mean strip-mall storefronts or renovated old theaters.
No, we mean churches with congregations who have money to burn and have burned it unwisely.
Six of the worst in Houston. (Note: These involve only exterior views, so as to limit any chances of actual church attendance.):
5. Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart
Oh, Catholic Diocese of Galveston-Houston: You used to have a perfectly charming church:
Yeah, it was small, but it's not like church attendance in downtown Houston was threatening to overwhelm it.
At any rate, somehow you found the $49 million to build a new facility. And you got this modern bunker, hunkered down against the mean streets of downtown, about as welcoming as the county jail. At least you gave us Steroid Jesus in the limited amount of stained glass provided.
