St. Pius was in need of a larger church to accommodate its growing Roman Catholic community in the Diocese of Ft. Wayne-South Bend. For this new 1,300-seat church EverGreene designed, fabricated and installed new murals and liturgical decoration. Design work began by meeting with the committee and architects, studying the architecture of the building, and researching the ecclesiastical precedent of Lombardy, St. Pius’home. The original artwork includes:
- A celestial pattern on the sanctuary dome and inscription.
- A mural on the triumphal arch tympanum featuring Christ flanked by angels and 12 sheep, above the communion of saints and murals of St. Peter and St. Pius X in the style of mosaics.
- Medallions of the apostles on each clerestory bay and the transept received 12 lunettes featuring stags drinking from the waters of Christ.
- Stenciling, faux quoining and Petrine symbolism throughout the church.
