St Mary's

This is St Mary's Polish Roman Catholic Church which is located right in the midst of a residential neighborhood in the west end of the city. The original church was founded and built in 1915 and was expanded to this present size in 1938. The large crucifix was installed in 2015 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the congregation.

Now that is a lovely location, and such a pretty building it is as well!

Very nice old church which I guessed was catholic from the crucifix out front.

A plain but quite attractive building...looks neat and functional. I'd love to see the interior.

Interesting exterior for a Catholic Church, over here they tend to be a little more 'plain', the interiors of course are quite the opposite...

It is absolutely beautiful! By the way, tomorrow on my blog I am showing two new murals here in Tallahassee painted by a Toronto artist whose work you have shown several times on your blog…Birdo! I think you will like them.

Interesting front facade. Makes me wonder it looked originally.

Nice looking church. There are a few churches around here that have the nice stonework only on the front & just cement rendered on the other 3 sides too. I guess it was cost saving to do it that way.

Interesting architecture. Simple Catholic style with a snout for Canadian winters.

I've visited Toronto twice but never out in the neighborhoods. One day...

The front facade certainly catches my eye.

This church is a classic. It would fit into many communities and countries.
