Facade of the Church. The facade of the Church resembles the facade of Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, and was designed by him as typically American.
The Tower. The tower resembles In-dependency Tower in Philadelphia.
Plaque. On a plaque beneath the point of the roof, in terra cotta, are the features of St. Robert as they appear on his official medal authorized by the Pope.
Front door. The door is similar to that of the Gregorian University in Rome, of which Robert Bellarmine was president. The coat of arms of Cardinal Bellarmine appears about the door. At the top corners above the door are found the American eagle and the shield of the United States guarding the Cross and the Ten Commandments, symbolizing American protection of religious liberty and individual rights.
The Flagpole. At the base of the flagpole is a bronze plaque with symbols holy to both Jew and Christian – the six pointed Star of David and the Cross. Inscribed is an excerpt from the Declaration of Independence; “All men are created equal. They are endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights.”
The design of the Star of David and the Cross is used many times throughout the buildings of the parish, symbolizing the unity of the Judaic-Christian traditions.
