Prominent architect Halfdan M. Hanson designed and immediately began building the Mission-style church, which was modeled after the Santa Maria Madelena church in Pico, Azores. It features a statue of Our Lady of Good Voyage, who holds a boat in her left hand as a symbol of a safe voyage. In 1922, one of the oldest sets of full carillon bells in the United States was installed in the towers.
