St Johns - Brisbane, Australia

Quote:
St John's Cathedral is unique in Australia as the completion of the building design was achieved through collaboration between clergy, stonemasons and architects over a period of almost 100 years, as with Romanesque and Gothic cathedrals in the Middle Ages and, more recently, 20th century cathedrals such as Liverpool Cathedral in England, St John the Divine in New York and Washington National Cathedral in Washington DC. It was also the only Victorian Gothic cathedral under construction in Australia.

Maybe they copied the church in Rome, built 1998-2003. While in Cologne for the new mosque construction began in 2009.

When the Dutch settles in Bali, they are also interested in spreading Christianity in the island, but they aren't really successful. However they managed to convert a handful, the converts were then expelled by the unconverted Balinese from their villages and treated as traitors, as a result the Dutch gave them land to build their own village. One is dedicated to Catholic namely Palasari and its neighbor for the Protestant Blimbingsari. Both village have their church built in their traditional way.

Palasari "Sacred Heart Catholic Church"

St. Mary Lourdes Church, Puh Sarang, Kediri, East Java - an interesting blend of Christian churches with local Javanese architecture.

Ganjuran Church/Church of the sacred Heart, Ganjuran, Yogyakarta Special Region, Central Java - Catholic church that are built following Majapahit Hindu temple.

he land on which Ganjuran Church is now located was once part of a sugar factory, run by the Dutch brothers Joseph and Julius Schmutzer. In 1912 they began practising workers' rights as outlined in the Rerum Novarum; they then began working on establishing educational facilities on the land, with seven boys' schools opened in 1919 and a girls' school opened in 1920. They also promoted Catholicism amongst their employees. With the proceeds from their factory, the Schmutzers established St Elisabeth Hospital in Ganjuran, first as a clinic. They also established Onder de Bogen (now Panti Rapih Hospital) in Yogyakarta proper. St Elisabeth is now managed by the Order of Carolus Borromeus.

Also in 1920, Pr. van Driessch, a member of the Society of Jesus who had taught at Xaverius College in Muntilan, began giving sermons and working to establish a Catholic community in the area. By 1922 there were 22 native Javanese Catholics, a number which increased rapidly. On 16 April 1924 the Schmutzers established a church on their grounds, with van Driessch as its first pastor. The carvings and other facets were worked on by a Javanese sculptor named Iko

Three years later the congregation began construction of a 10-metre (33 ft) tall Hindu-styled temple (candi), resembling the one at Prambanan Temple; Iko set statues of Mary and Jesus as Javanese royalty and teachers, which were adorned with batik motives. Stones were taken from the slopes of Mount Merapi to the north, while the entrance was pointed to southern sea; this orientation reflected a Javanese belief in the harmony between north and south. The temple was formalised on 11 February 1930 by Bishop of Batavia Antonius van Velsen.

The original structure have been toppled by the 2006 earthquake, the candi altar however remain standing, the current one are rebuilt in Javanese palace architecture.
