St. Andrew's


No this isn't the golf course - it's one of Jackson's oldest congregations. St. Andrew's is located in the heart of downtown Jackson. It's a beautiful building surrounded by leafy green trees. The building is over 100 years old which may not seem like much by old world standards, but for the new world, that's quite a feat! I'd love to go inside and check out the stained glass, but churches here aren't open to the public like they are in Europe.

I think my friend taught there. Do they have a day school at St. Andrews? It's lovely. I'll bet they'll be happy to let you in to photograph. I'm pretty sure ours are open here. I'll have to check.

They do have a school as well, but it's located in the northern suburbs of Jackson.

I suppose if I asked to go in they would probably let me. I'm a little shy about things like that though. :)

It has a British look to it. It's a shame the older churches aren't open...

They still hold services in the church. But I'm certainly not going to walk in during the mass and click away! They probably would never let me back in then. :)

It is too bad that our churches aren't open to the public to worship when they wish. I'd love to see some of those stained glass windows.


I'm vacationing on an island in Wisconsin and get a very poor internet signal. I'll be back whenever I can!

It's beautiful! What a nice tower.

Very nice church, same problem here, where I'm getting by ambushing priests and sacristans...

Nice light! What brand is St. Andrew's? Looks Episcopalian...

One hundred years is no small feat, especially since it's located in prime real estate. It looks lovely but I'm sorry to hear that it's not open to the public. I find that sad. Churches are natural refuges and sanctuaries, and much needed in today's busy, hectic and chaotic life.

That's a pity and sort of a paradox in an open society. Still, there's always the exterior for us to admire.
