The Mural's History
The old mural is painted over [1970's]
New mural is designed and installed [2008-9]

The Coronation Of Mary, surrounded by angels, is the 5th Glorious Mystery of the Roman Catholic Faith. It was originally part of Holy Angels sanctuary mural until the late 1950s. It was painted over and replaced in the late 1970s.

Part of the restoration plans were to bring back The Coronation Of Mary, but with a new concept. In keeping with the Coronation theme, Timothy Englert designed, executed, and installed a new mural based on the paintings of the master artists; Velasquez (1599-1660), Tiepolo (1696-1770), and Bouguereau (1825-1905).
