Inside At Last

The outside of yesterday's Church of St Mary Magdalene did not prepare me for the interior which was so beautiful and light. It was such a pleasure to walk in there and see the wonderful rood cross hanging in its bright environment. The cross was modeled by sculptor Frances Loring and was painted by Frank Johnston who was one of the Group Of Seven, a famous group of 20th Century Canadian painters. Apparently many of the windows along the sides of the church had been covered since the 1920s and were opened up again during a renovation in 2008. I'm so glad I got in to see this interior.

That is a really beautiful church. Simple is often better than ornate. And a good choice for Easter!

Quite spare and clean. Interesting cross for sure. Did you notice if the altar was up against the wall? Some of the Anglo-Catholic folks still do that so the priest faces away from the congregation.
