Today I'm featuring churches taken at various times. This late April shot of Centretown United Church features the building bathed in late day sunlight. The church dates to 1906, in the Gothic Revival style.
In early May, I passed by McPhail Memorial Baptist Church, also in Centretown. An off shoot of First Baptist Church, this was founded in 1888 and combines Gothic and Norman architecture styles.
On a July day, we had an incoming storm. I took a chance to photograph the familiar roofline of Southminster United Church in Old Ottawa South against the brooding sky.
Some days later, here we had a different perspective of Southminster.
Up in the Glebe, also in July, I took these views of St. Giles Presbyterian Church.
In August, I was passing through Sandy Hill, where the University of Ottawa dominates the neighbourhood. St. Joseph's is a Catholic church, one of two on campus.
Up the street is St. Paul's- Eastern United Church.
On another August day I was passing once again through the campus at the University of Ottawa and photographed this second church on campus. The Paroisse de Sacre Coeur is a Francophone Catholic church, partnered with St. Joseph's. This modern structure replaces an older one that was destroyed by fire.
There is a chapel off the main entrance that is generally open during the day, with wonderfully abstract stained glass.
And I finish with this shot taken on Labour Day, inside Notre Dame Basilica. Aside from times of mass, the Catholic church is open to visits through the day.
