St Basil's

This lovely Gothic Revival church is St Basil's, found at St Michael's College at U of Toronto, and it functions as a parish church as well as a collegiate church. Established in 1856 in a countryside location, it remains the 3rd oldest Roman Catholic church in the city and now finds itself in the middle of downtown as the city spread out around it. I must go by for some interior pics one day. 
Taking part in Inspired Sunday. Click here for more religious buildings.

It does have a certain august air about it. And a sense of solidity. Interior shots would be nice, too.

It's hard to believe it was once in a countryside location. The city certainly has grown!

Very graceful - glad it's survived the march of the city around it.
