This is a day late, but I’ve got so many door photos.
I figured that January 6, Epiphany, would be the last day to see Christmas decorations in a church. I returned to Holy Trinity Polish Mission, another church built in the late 19th Century. I’d been blown away with its art and architecture.
Once a local parish, Holy Trinity is now a mission for Polish Catholics in Chicago. The mass I attended was 100% in Polish so I marveled at the sacred art as scripture was read and the homily given.
The mass I attended had about 300 people in attendance, which is unexpected in an era when so many churches are half empty. I think the Polish are still quite serious about religion.
I learned that Poland celebrated its independence in 1918.
I love to see how people keep their culture alive generation after generation. Holy Trinity has a grade school and high school.
Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American Eastern Time).
This week I’m sharing some stairs and doors. The top two are in New York and the last one’s from Lincoln Park, Chicago.
The Which Way Challenge, that Cee began, has been picked up by the Sonofthebeach69 blogger. The beauty of it is that it’s very free form. You can include images of doors, gates, roads, streets exits, signs, paths, waterways, you name it.
Join the fun. Share some directionally oriented photos and link to Sonofthebeach69 so we can find them. Include the image below.
Each week Cee challenges bloggers to share black and white photos based on a theme. Here’s my glass, a window in Chicago’s Cliff Dweller’s Club.
