The "Man for All Seasons," Sir Thomas More, served God and King Henry VIII, but lost his head for putting God first. The campus of this church features more of the "stuff" people associate with Roman Catholicism, but it's offered in a refreshingly tasteful way. There are two shrines and an outdoor Stations of the Cross artfully installed among the spreading live oaks and limestone-lined paths. Rather than going the strict, ghoulish, representational route, these stations merely suggest each scene. A quiet place to be by yourself, even if you aren't Catholic.
