St. Francis Church

a place of reflection on the alpine pasture

It’s obvious why St Francis was chosen as the patron of this particular church: Francis of Assisi saw traces of God everywhere in nature.
The architect chose the dove for the basic architectural shape. The main section represents the body of the dove, the two approaches from the west and east are reminiscent of its outspread wings; the upward-facing tower is the beak of the dove. The dove is a symbol of the Holy Spirit and for Saint Francis it was a dove of peace.
The interior suggests a round church and is a part of the whole Church of Christ: Curved benches, side walls narrowing to the front emphasise the altar and draw attention to the centrepiece. This centrepiece is God. The stained glass window behind the altar glows in different shades of colour depending on the sunlight, allowing something of the glory of God to shine from heaven in our midst. Altar, lectern and tabernacle are made from fine concrete and express the simplicity, the sobriety, the simplicity of St. Francis and reveal the message as the key element. The bell tower houses three bells. They toll daily to celebrate God and summon the flock to worship together.
