With the theme day for July 1st being about Spirit, it seems appropriate to finish off the month with some church posts, taken from the Doors Open weekend earlier this month. St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Church regularly takes part in Doors Open. The congregation was founded in 1910, and the current church was built at this location in the early 1950s, in the English Gothic style, formally dedicated in 1954. It is one of two neighbouring churches on Cathedral Hill, overlooking the Garden of the Provinces and Territories, as well as Library and Archives Canada.
Inside, the sanctuary is a welcoming one. Quilts were hanging from the pews- I heard from one of the ladies present here that the congregation makes five hundred of those in a given year, and those go to Lutheran mission work.
The stained glass in the sanctuary is marvelous. Their subjects include music, the history of the Lutheran church, and the life of Christ.
I like the finer details too, such as this at the altar.
The church has a Casavant organ, installed at the back of the sanctuary, separating it from the church hall glimpsed through the windows.
Here we have a close up of one of those quilts.
I finish with a western view of the church. Tomorrow we'll have a look at its neighbour; its spire was just visible in my first shot for today.
