 Wisconsin Rapids (WAOW)- The St. Peter and Paul Parish in Wisconsin Rapids has a new look.

The new artwork features two life size oil paintings created by a Greek artist. It took six months for him and his team to design and paint the creative project.

Jim Stathopoulos, the man behind the painting, hopes the artwork will inspire and uplift the church. He says, "The new artwork, for me, has been inspired by the hearts and the minds of the desire of the people to uplift and renew the house of God."

He says the real beauty is the people inside the church.

A special mass was held this morning to celebrate the finished product.

Church officials say the new artwork helps them to become one of the most beautiful churches in Central Wisconsin.
