More Details of the Holy Family Shrine

The altar inside this church has a lovely crucifixion group behind it.
The whole sanctuary end is raised up, with a short flight of steps,
and a pool of water beneath it

At the base of the crucifix is a relief sculpture of wheat,
appropriate for Nebraska,
and of course appropriate for the Eucharist:

Just above the crucifix,
etched into the glass,
is an oval portrait of the Holy Family.
While it can be seen from inside or out,
my exterior photograph is one I like,
to show the setting:
