A dominant feature of the newly built church’s interior, the 5.5-meter tall glass cross weighing more than a metric ton nevertheless makes a light impression.

Made of tempered and layered glass, it is unique in terms of not only size but also structural and safety considerations.

Studio Lhotský also realized another work in the church – an eternal light. Located in the church’s sacristy, it is made of cast glass with a light inside.
