Easter Sunday at St. Aloysius Church - The present church was dedicated October 12, 1911. It has the largest seating capacity among Catholic churches in Spokane, able to accommodate 1,100 worshippers. An adapted Romanesque style, its many rounded arches and graceful circular features help to soften construction lines. The church, begun in 1909, took almost exactly two years to build at a cost of $176,125. There are many churches in the Catholic faith named St. Aloysius. This one serves Gonzaga University which is nearby
