Blessed Sacrament

I took additional shots inside Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in the Glebe during Doors Open. Check out the original post. Here we have the altar.


And this is one of the other stained glass windows.

  1. It really is a beautiful church William.. as for your question in the last post I don't think it will ever be known how many plaques and markers, I should imagine there are so many that aren't on the normal tourist destinations.. I do however feel like I've seen every one in Paris, my traveling companion was a history fanatic AND eagle eye :)

  2. Wonderful glass; really stunning. The church looks relatively unadorned for a Catholic one.

  8. @Grace: to begin to count them would an impossible task.

    @Mike: that's quite true. It's a contrast to our Notre Dame.

    @Linda: thank you!

    @Jen: thanks!

    @Halcyon: so do I.

    @Revrunner: I recall it was Pentecost weekend, so that's probably the reason.

    @EG: quote so!

    @Hilary: I do too.

    @Jose: it's unexpectedly austere for a Catholic church.

    @Norma: I agree!

    @Jan: I never get tired of them.

  19. It is very pretty! We have a church here with the same name, but it is newer than this one I think. It has some marvelous stained glass than was designed by a friend of mine.
