St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church is one I've photographed before. The parish dates back to the 19th century, while the current church dates from the early 1950s, according to what I found (it certainly looks more old fashioned on the outside than the sanctuary itself). It's on the edge of Little Italy, and I was in the area early one morning when I noticed the front doors were open. I took a quick look inside.
Very nice. What is Little Italy like? Do they have food there? And if so, how yummy is it?ReplyDelete
Lovely stone church, and it is quite big, too.ReplyDelete
It is lovely, William, I love the different colours of stone and the interior is so nice!ReplyDelete
I love the stone facade. And the shape of the chapel is nice too!ReplyDelete
It is a great and beautiful church.ReplyDelete
Comforting somehow, WilliamReplyDelete
The inside looks very nice and the last photo is pretty!ReplyDelete
Clever, I love the cool inside William and the outside looks very traidtionalReplyDelete
Cool looking lights. :-)ReplyDelete
What a beautiful church! Inside looks very artistic!ReplyDelete
Lovely! I adore stained glass.ReplyDelete
Another beautiful interior. You're blessed.ReplyDelete
The inside has a bit of a futuristic look.ReplyDelete
That's a huge sanctuary. The outside gives you no indication of the arches seen inside.ReplyDelete
There's lots of stained glass window.
William such beautiful images!ReplyDelete
@Whisk: there's no shortage of good food in Little Italy!ReplyDelete
@Orvokki: it is a very good size.
@Linda: the interior really surprised me.
@Halcyon: it had been quite awhile since I'd photographed it last. I often passed by it when I lived in Hintonburg.
@Tomas: I certainly think so.
@Cloudia: I agree.
@Chrissy: it really surprised me, the inside, but then finding out that the current building is newer than it looks explains that.
Good timing to be there when the doors were open wide!ReplyDelete
@Revrunner: they are!ReplyDelete
@Tamago: I do like the design.
@Susie: I do too.
@Birdman: there are a whole lot of churches here!
@Sharon: it does, yes.
@Red: the stained glass really drew me in.
I like the front as well as the interior.ReplyDelete
Your second photo gives a wonderful view inside.
Great façade! Love the first shot of the interior, it's fantastic!ReplyDelete
My favorites are the second and the last shots!ReplyDelete
The inside was a big surprise for me! I really like it!ReplyDelete
Very traditional and very beautiful!ReplyDelete
@EG: it was good timing!ReplyDelete
@Jose: it really surprised me, seeing it like that.
@VP: I like them too.
@RedPat: it was mere chance, being out there that particular day. I'm in Little Italy every day, but rarely over in that part of the area.
@Lowell: I agree!
The inside is beautiful!ReplyDelete
wow, the lighting on that ceiling!ReplyDelete
Beautiful stained glass William, lovely interior..ReplyDelete
I do love those windows!ReplyDelete
@Marleen: I agree!ReplyDelete
@Tex: it's quite something.
@Geoff: it really stood out to me.
@Lois: me too.
@Mari: it is!
@Norma: I agree!
Very nice! I like the interior view especially.ReplyDelete
That first interior shot is especially nice. It's quite nice inside.ReplyDelete
once again, the stained glass colours and design are magical. Somehow the exterior of the church suggests a large church and yet seems compact.ReplyDelete
Gosh it's a beauty William, inside and out. I too love that second shot, a wonderful look into the body of the church.ReplyDelete
The outside and the inside sure don't match, do they, William?ReplyDelete
@Kay: it's quite a beautiful church.
@Gemma: that's true.
