Additional observations Holy Redeemer is a new parish, established in 2000. Mass was held in a nearby mall until the church was completed in 2009. Its decoration is a work in progress. There are four shrines, all of which now have statues. The church has some unique statues, such as one of Mother Teresa and John Paul II, and another of St. Joseph with the boy Jesus teaching him carpentry and holding a model of the church. Flooring has recently been added—previously it was a concrete floor—and stained glass windows are being added.
