Church Lighting

The following 2008 Capital Projects have been completed:
We commissioned Rambusch Decorating Company to breathe new light into our church interiors. The follow excerpt from their Rambusch in Manhattan literature profiles their work in our church:

    Holy Name of Jesus Church, located in the old Bloomingdale Village on the Upper West Side, was built in 1898 and designed by the architect, Thomas Henry Poole. The church’s high Gothic architectural presence on the northwest corner of 96th Street and Amsterdam Avenue adds richness and interest to the neighborhood.

    Upon entering the 1,000 seat interior, the eye is drawn upwards to the sixty-foot high English Gothic timbered ceiling with hammer beams that support the wooden arches as they spring across the nave. Above are wood trusses, beams, pierced decorative elements, rafters, purlins and wooden paneling, not all of which could be seen until the recent upgraded program by Rambusch revealed these rich details with only eighteen PAL-118 lighting fixtures.

    The innovative lighting in the interior of the space highlighted many other treasures, such as the fifty-one painted angels looking down from the panels in the blind triforum and a crucifixion mural over the old main altar in the sanctuary, now all clearly visible following the new lighting installed by Rambusch in 2008. The white Carrara marble altars, reredos, statues, railings and pulpit all radiate with accent light.

    Of special note is the fact that it does not detract from the thirty-seven Munich-style stained glass windows. This vibrant and well-attended church is now served by the Franciscan Fathers who are very enthusiastic about their newly welcoming, well-lighted worship environment.
