"It's like we are children again, walking into a fairy story."
- Jonathan Pageau, interviewing Andrew Gould
Dear parish family and friends of Holy Apostles,
Many of you were not with us at Holy Apostles five years ago, when the Lord sent to our parish one of the greatest living Orthodox architects in America, Andrew Gould. He has designed our parish hall and will also be involved with the design of the interior of our historic chapel. Check out the below videos and learn about the architect and our future parish home.
Beauty and Meaning Today (scroll down to watch this video interview with Andrew Gould, the designer of Holy Apostles' parish hall.)
Andrew speaks of the otherworldly beauty of Orthodox churches throughout time: "The Russians wanted their churches to look like they are not of this world. They are part of the Kingdom of Heaven. They are part of the New Jerusalem. They are of the Kingdom of God. They are like the Ivory Palace."
In his intro to this fascinating conversation, Pageau says, "His work is rich in an exploration of traditional principles coupled with an attention to the particularities of context as well as a hint of fantasy. I explore his approach to creation and his worldview."
Andrew Gould spoke to us in October of 2017, about our storybook historic chapel. The chapel was given to our parish along with 2 acres of beautiful land, in 2009:
