Cathedrals & Churches II

As stated in a prior post, Cathedrals & Churches, when speaking to a friend, "I offered to preview some of his favorite pictures on," my blog. Two pictures followed. Below are a couple more.

Nave and Sanctuary
Monastery of the
Immaculate Conception
(a Benedictine
community of women)
Ferdinand, IN

This house of worship is elegance par excellence. The structure behind the altar is a small enclosed chapel where the tabernacle is kept. The space is vast – yet intimate – and also features a second level balcony level that surrounds the nave.

The altar rests on a multicolored geometric pattern. Images of the life of Christ are cast in bronze and embedded in the sides of the altar.
Sanctuary and Choir
Saint Meinrad’s Archabbey
(a Benedictine community of men)
Saint Meinrad, IN
