PAUL COZE - Public Works from St. Thomas the Apostle Church in Phoenix, AZ

St. Thomas the Apostle Church in Phoenix, located at 24th St. and Campbell Rd, was where I first attended school (elementary) after moving to Arizona.  It was also our parish church.  I can remember when Mr.  Coze's Stations of the Cross were first displayed.  They were different than other Stations I had seen in my short life...the others were more like small placques, but these were actual paintings...larger than most and framed.  They were also different in that they were not painted in the old masters' techniques that I was so used to seeing in the Church...these were a little edgy...they made me want to study them more...they seemed more relevant to me...

 The Church is beautiful, btw...it has been recently redone with changes in the railing in the front and new paintings...
