Photo of the Day: St. Andrew’s Roman Catholic Church, Westwood NJ

For a number of years, driving through Westwood, NJ, on Washington Avenue, I have noticed St. Andrew’s Roman Catholic Church. Last weekend, curiosity finally got the better of me and I took a shot of the exterior.

While the parish itself has been around since the 19th century, the present structure was dedicated in 1964 and renovated 24 years later. The stained glass windows were created by the famous French designer Jean Barillet (1912-1997), who worked in a number of basilicas, cathedrals and churches in many countries including the The Cathedral of St Joseph in Hartford, as well as the Cathedral of Notre Dame and the Church of Audincourt, both in his native France.
