Just for the heck of it, I thought I’d show you a few images of my parish church. Here’s the exterior with Tudor theme:
And the interior from the choir loft. The clutter in front of the altar is from last week’s diocesan jubilee event at a school Mass: 50 cans of food from every classroom on the 50th day of school in the 50th year of the merged dioceses.
Here’s an interior looking toward the south window. You can see our patron in the right third of the window. A little tougher to make out is the carpenter Joseph with young Jesus in the upper portion. Sacraments are portrayed in the bottom section.
This image shows a bit of the northern Mary window. My favorite quiz is to ask a child (or adult) to discern as many of the mysteries of the rosary as she or he can. You might not be able to, but this gives you an idea of where I am on weekends.
It’s a nice church. Better than it was when it was built. It has its little problems. And a few big ones. But I’ve grown very accustomed to the building and the people who come to worship in it.
