St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

CUSTOM COPPER ELEMENTS ENHANCE MISSION ARCHITECTURE

THE REVIVAL OF A SOUTHWESTERN SANCTUARY

Hand-crafted copper elements now adorn St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Keller, Texas. Fabricated by CopperCraft, these custom design elements dignify and enhance the mission-style architecture frequently found in Texas.

Over the years, the sanctuary’s oversized wooden doors began to decay from exposure. Rather than replacement, copper sheeting was applied to their exterior to preserve, enhance and extend their life. The doors were planed and prepped so that the 20-ounce copper could seamlessly meld to their profile. Now adorned by a glowing copper surface, they create a sense of beauty and awe that welcomes worshipers to the main sanctuary.

Stunning copper accents also enhance the new outdoor pavilion located on the grounds between the church and the parochial school. A custom-fabricated 15″ double-lock copper standing seam roof covers the octagonal pavilion. Inspired by an existing CopperCraft design, the cupola was created specifically for the site. CAD renderings were used to design the aluminum frame that was subsequently covered with a plywood substrate, waterproofed, and clad in copper.

These beautiful elements have revived and expanded the church for the next generation.
