St. Michael Catholic Church, Central City, NE

St. Michael Catholic Church in Central City is a wonderfully angular, Mid-Century church that was constructed in 1966.

A vivid stained glass window of the church's patron resides above the main entrance.

Words of welcome above the doors leading into the nave.

Despite the light color of the interior walls and ceiling, the church is quite dark. The windows are large, but note how they are angled to give the congregation a full view.

The dominant element of the church interior is a large crucifix suspended above the altar. The sanctuary also features a very simple, but elegant marble altar.

Tabernacle in a reposition area in the sanctuary.

View toward the main entrance. The randomly placed upper windows are a fantastic Mid-Century touch!

The first station, Jesus Condemned to Death. I would imagine that these stations were from a previous church building.

The real treasures of St. Michael's Church are the large and colorful stained glass windows. Pictured here is St. Isidore, patron of farmers.

A delightful trio of windows in the choir area, near the sanctuary.
