It employs a balance of both modern as well as gothic-style architecture. It features a replica of Michelangelo's Pietà; one of only three in the world officially authorized by the Vatican.
The church also has a unique spiral stairway (instead of stairs) that features an accompanying spiraling mural which begins with the biblical story of creation in Genesis at the base of the walkway, including the life events of Jesus, His Passion and ending with illustrations from the Acts of the Apostles.
