St Joseph's



Saint Joseph Catholic church is located in Gluckstadt, Mississippi. The congregation hosts the annual Germanfest every year. I'm not sure what the proceeds go towards, but it must be something charitible.

In any case, I like the simplicity of their place of worship, and the light coming through the bell tower is quite nice as well. For more information on the history of the church and its congregation, click here.

I am glad you are enjoying the photos of the magnificent condors, slot canyon, plants, and Cliffs on my site. Thanks for your comments! I am learning a lot and trying to become a better photographer.

This is a rather "simple" building for a Catholic church. Nicely shot, Halcyon.

Hope you're having fun!

Jacob: Having a good time so far. I'm working from my company's German office this week, so I expect a bit less fun now!

Okay, I see the tower, but where's the bell? ;)

Halcyon said...

Hilda: Good question! Maybe it's out for repairs... or the tower is decorative only.

Nice church, lovely website. In few words and simple images they describe the interesting and not-so-lucky history of the church.
Thank you for the link.

Bloom where you're planted, as they say...and soon you'll be back home! :-)

And here I was thinking that a brick wall is a bit unusual for a church. Delightful!
