Church renovation and new calvary in Csehimindszent
The area in front of the church was laid out as a space for the celebration of mass, and a calvary was designed around it. The stations start at the south-east corner and proceed along the rising crown of the wall, going round the church up to the north-east corner. The calvary provides the architectural framework for reliefs depicting each of the fourteen Stations of the Cross, with selected words by József Mindszenty.
Outdoor illumination and floodlighting was set up in the church area, and we cleared the untended vegetation from the church hill and laid out new plants.
The roof of the church was replaced, and the new rendering displays different architectural eras. In the interior, we laid out new flooring, and the damaged parts of the frescoes were restored and missing parts repainted. The high altar, the Virgin Mary altar and the pulpit were all restored. New light fittings were installed above the pilasters to provide differentiated illumination – indirect for the vaulting and direct for the frescoes.
The interior furnishings are all new and comprise pews, versus populum altar, lectern, chairs, confessional and sacristy furniture, all made out of oak.
