"I have known Achim Klaas for some 25 years and regard him as a specialist in liturgical design and sculpture.  Specializing in liturgical art and architecture for 30 years has helped him to integrate faith, form and function based on proper liturgical principles.  Quality was never compromised whether the task be large or small."
Msgr. Dominic Pizzacalla,
St. Julia Church, St. Catherines, ON
"We were in need of someone who had liturgical savoir faire and Achim Klaas fulfilled this role in the renewals that we needed for St. Julia Church.  I was completely satisfied with his expertise and workmanship."
Patrick J. Daly
Chairperson of the Board, Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board
"From concept discussions through to the design and production stages Klaas Design has provided outstanding service to our school board.  The beauty and sense of spiritual space of our Secondary School Chapels has in large measure been realized as a result of the contribution of Achim Klaas and staff."
Rev. Philip Sherlock
St. Clements Church, Cambridge, ON
"Over the past 25 years Achim has become the foremost religious and ecclesiastical artist and sculptor, certainly in Ontario, and perhaps in all of Canada.  His sculptures adorn churches throughout our diocese and far beyond."
Rev. John Ohner
Muenster, Texas
"For several years I have known and engaged the services of Achim Klaas and his team at Klaas Design.  He is an extremely fine liturgical designer and artist, always showing sensitivity to individual needs and requirements following through with care and attention for the details.  This yields uncompromising work, both in his architectural design and in the creation of sculpture or liturgical specialty items.
Rev. Michael Bechard
Chaplain, King's College at the University of Western Ontario
"I had the great pleasure of working with Klaas Design during the renovation of one worship space and during the construction of another space which would be used for our Sunday liturgies and by community groups during the rest of the week.  Mr. Klaas provided great vision and showed tremendous creativity in working with the space that we provided him and with the monies that we had allotted for the project.  As someone who has completed graduated work in liturgical studies, I was impressed with his familiarity with current trends in liturgical and sacramental theology and the pastoral insights that he provided in our conversations.  Everyone who has been to celebrate in the space that he has designed for us have been inspired by the beauty and simplicity which he has provided us.  Having seen the gifts that he has brought to our community and to our diocesan church, I would have no hesitation in recommending him to parishes or institutions who might be seeking guidance."
