Father Pitt

Why should the beautiful die?

Church of St. Stephen Proto-Martyr, Hazelwood

Statue of St. Stephen
Date stone

The Baroque style is unusual, but St. Stephen’s is a Frederick Sauer church through and through, starting with that yellow Kittanning brick he favored. We’ll have to wait till the leaves drop to get a view of the front, but since the building is slowly crumbling, it’s good to get the details as soon as we can.
