Erik Nitsche: Church of St. Mary and St. Peter, Jersey
In the Catholic Church, all bishops are equally bishops. Together, they form the college of bishops, which is not the sum of separate independent bishops, but a single spiritual power in the church, which all bishops share equally. This power was given first to Peter, and then to other apostles, who shared in the power of Peter. Of all the Saints saved by the Redeemer, however, Mary is the most revered. The Catholic religion is very devoted to Mary, for they believe God chose her to be the first point of contact between historical man and his spiritual salvation. The Roman Catholic Church featured in this artwork is located on Wellington Road in St. Helier, Jersey. The capital of Jersey, St. Helier is a port and trading center, as well as a popular resort. The church was built on the grounds of Beaulieu School from plans drawn up by Bill Davis. The building was finished in brick, in a granite setting. Until the 20th century, churches had provided for serveral types of worship, but nothing more. Today, Sunday Scool and church social activities are taken into consideration when a church is constructed.
