ANOTHER IN A LINE OF NICELY BUILT NEW CHURCHES

St. Raymond of Penyafort Church, Springfield, Virginia

Hat tip to Fr. Gonzales.
Features in this really nice new ediface include a high altar with a really nice reredos, a choir loft with a three-manual Rodgers organ (pipes from Fratelli Ruffati are due to follow in a month or two, but the organ is in use now as it is), and many other features that have often been removed in the so-called "spirit of Vatican II".

Check out the St. Raymond Parish Website for plenty more pictures of this modern traditional ediface.

Peace,

Gawgeous!
Used to live in Springfield and that is a beautiful sight. All the other Catholic churches in the immediate vicinity are spaceships -- with really wonderful parishioners trapped inside.
