St. Rose of Lima serves a growing Catholic Diocese in Reno, Nevada. With the Rocky Mountains in the background near Donner Pass, it stands in a scenic location, which is portrayed in its stunning stained glass window. This dramatic interior is reminiscent of Mount Sinai where Moses struck a rock to release water. The church was dedicated in 2003 by the founding pastor, Father Tom Donnelly and Bishop Phillip Straling.
MLA worked with Architects Plus of Reno, Nevada to develop the interior acoustics. We were also responsible for the mechanical noise control, and the design of the sound system and technical booth. The system provides high intelligibility in a reverberant space without large, visually intrusive loudspeakers.
