Our Lady of Lourdes

According to Thomas Marvel, this is a purely traditional design with nothing original to it and reflects none of the spirit of some of Nechodoma's early work.   
Certain traits of the 1908 design of  Our Lady of Lourdes Chapel have a close resemblance to the Columbia, SC firm Wilson & Edwards' design of the Episcopalian  St John's Cathedral  in Jacksonville, FL where Nechodoma lived and worked before relocating to the Caribbean.  
The cathedral seems to have had some influence in the design of this chappel.  The Gargoyles and battlements on the tower, the stained glass window and the rose window above it as well as the Celtic Cross are all characteristics that can be seen on both designs.
