Why do we build beautiful churches? A church is meant to be a stepping stone, a glimmer, a wedge into the gates of Heaven. It is meant to separate us from the world not bring us closer to it. Why is this important? Every moment of every day we fight against evil. Our spiritual home has to be much like our own home. Our home services our day to day while our spiritual home services our soul.
A simple change can move mountains in people, their givings and their respect. Its a hospital for our minds and soul. A person never asks why we have to spend so much money making a hospital the way that we do. There are always economical solutions from a simple change in candlesticks, tabernacle or shifting clutter out of the sanctuary.
For Instance St Faustina said, "I know well that the greater and more beautiful the work is, the more terrible will be the storms that rage against it.

North Carolina- We celebrate 17 years in business in just a few short weeks. We would like to think we have made a difference. We hope in some small way we contributed to beautifying the church. We hope we brought a sense of another world to worship spaces around the world. I know life is short. I am reminded about it every day. The milestones in my children. The wrinkles across my face. The population in churches shift, they age. People always yearn to return to their youth. They were happiest then, perhaps. A return to Mom and dad, and the peacefulness of home as we age. The peacefullness of going home to a church that lifted your heart, provided direction in light in a world of darkness. Perhaps to know God a little closer and see a glimpse of heaven and why we really are here. We give God the best of who we are and what we can design and build. We bring beauty out of the worlds resources and refine and craft them into something so pleasing it could bring a tear to ones eye.
There is a calling from the time we are born until the time we die to want more from our spiritual home, a desire. In a world, calling for so much ugliness and hoping to redefine the lines of what is graceful and beautiful is what it does to us. Our church, our home, when our casket is rolled down the isle is to bring the mourners, the widow, the widower, the children to a place closest to God. Have you ever looked at a flower, no matter where it grew and said it was ugly? Our buildings our church is a sliver of heaven, we pry a gap in the dividing lines between heaven and earth with a building that inspires us to do so. Its our stairway our glimpse into heaven. Its our goal to make our churches beautiful with inspired duty to create things economical.

Cathedral of St Peter Kansas City Kansas Receives new Altar and Ambo Designed and built by our professionals.
June 2016 We were asked to formulate a plan to build an altar that matches the original architecture of the Cathedral. We took several weeks to develop a great plan that made sense and with the guidance of the good Fr. Schneider a plan was set and under way. What was found to be important about the project was to closely resemble the church architecture the very best that we could and incorporate an original feature of the upside down cross and keys. We then incorporated a spot in the back of the altar reserved for the relics so they could be placed on display. Lastly, candlesticks were of most importance. A plan was designed to match the original candlesticks on the high altar. We took components and sent them off to Europe to be casted just like the originals The original candlesticks were no longer being made so recreating the originals was the only and best option.
We hope these components out live us and the generations just like the original church and they go on to inspire and prayerfully remind us of our Mother Church and her good deeds.
We are proud of Fr. Harry Schneider, Archbishop Nauman and the entire staff of St Peters Cathedral and we send a special thank you to you.
With our Regards

IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Dickinson, ND - Jan. 2017, Fynders Keepers recently was a part of completing a project at Trinity High School in Dickinson, ND. Attached is the parish we completed almost two years ago. Our part was small, but part of a larger idea that encompassed bringing our children to something sacred and different than their every day life. A moment, perhaps two, with our Lord, a place deeper than their physical home, a place that brings them closer to God through the best we can give to him. After all, we want the best for our children, God's children. An elevation of our being without even knowing, by simply opening the door. Our eyes, without struggle, naturally gaze to the tabernacle which houses our Lord, the most important spot in the entire church.
Why do we build beautiful? Why waste the money? Isn't less more? Not really. Human nature prescribes for us different modes of travel emotionally, spiritually and physically for each individual person. We want our own personal homes certain ways and its even more important to have our spiritual homes in certain ways. It is because each individual requires different levels of value that we have to provide for God an avenue for each person level of spirituality. The beauty and the meaning behind each element brings our soul closer to God because we can be so easily distracted. Each item provides a spiritual journey and writes a story for us and before long we are engulfed in the space that brings us spiritually closer to God.
Thank you to the priests, benefactors and collaborators who worked tirelessly on this project to bring it whole. We are pleased to have been part of the process to help form so many students and faithful.
