Our Lady Queen of Angels Church


Architect AC Martin Partners, Inc.
Client Diocese of Orange
Location Newport Beach, CA


A glorious new sanctuary was constructed of structural steel and a light metal gauge frame with smooth plaster and stone exterior. The 80’ bell tower is a beacon for travelers along Jamboree and doubles as an antenna platform. With a 50’ high interior ridge, the ceiling is exposed curved architectural steel and forms gothic arches throughout the nave and sanctuary. An operable skylight above the sanctuary bathes the altar in natural light, and framing the backdrop of the altar is a 40’ high Reredos of wood, brass and metal fabric. A wood plank ceiling complements the mix of drywall, Venetian plaster, Baswaphon acoustical plaster and Eurospan fabric walls. Floors are exposed polished colored concrete and stone. Sitework and landscaping includes a gathering plaza with fountain. "Illig's accessibility, transparency and cooperation with the Parish, neighbors and the entire project team was exceptional. Our church was completed on time for Dedication and Christmas masses with excellent quality. I highly recommend Illig Construction Company to my fellow pastors for their good health!" - Father Kerry Beaulieu, Pastor
