St Vincent de Paul Roman Catholic Church, 1925
621 W Adams Blvd
Albert C Martin, Sr

The story goes that Edward L Doheny was Episcopalian and his wife Estelle Doheny was Roman Catholic. Mrs. Doheny sponsored the building of St Vincent de Paul’s Cathedral on the Norhwest corner of Adams and Figueroa across from her husband’s church. About this time Mr. Doheny’s congregation (numbering about 2,000) had outgrown the old 1894 building. So, not be outdone by his wife, Mr. Doheny sponsored the bulding of a new Episcopal cathedral on the opposite Southeast corner. Both were consecrated in 1925. Whether this romantic story is true is unknown. What is true, is that St John’s is as richly appointed inside as St Vincent’s is magnificient on the outside. Both cathedrals are built in traditional styles and complement each other beautifully.

St Vincent de Paul’s was designed in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, with accents in the Spanish (via Mexico) Churrigueresque. The interior is understated elegance, and the ceiling was decorated by John B Smeraldi. The fourty-five foot diameter dome is covered by brighly covered tiles. It was the second Roman Catholic church to be consecrated in Los Angeles.

St. Vincentiuskerk Volendam.
De Vincentiuskerk staat op de plek waar in 1860 het eerste katholieke kerkje van Volendam werd gebouwd. In 1883 werd dit kerkje vergroot met een hoog opgetrokken priesterkoor. De kerk is gebouwd in neo-barokke stijl, met rondbogen en vierkante pilaren. In 1908 werd de kerk verder vergroot. De voorgevel op het Kerkplein is gebouwd in de stijl van begin vorige eeuw. Het orgel in de kerk, afkomstig uit de voormalige Sint Annakerk in Amsterdam, is in 1999 grondig gerestaureerd.
