The design of Holy Spirit Catholic Church is based on the principles of Romanesque Revival architecture. The style is characterized by semi-circular arches, thick walls and sturdy piers. The floor plan of the worship space is based on the Latin cross, allowing for partial surround seating at the crossing of the nave and transepts. The campus was designed in three phases, starting with the sanctuary and ending with the parish hall and chapel building.
