On my first visit to the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph I wasn't able to get photos of two of the cathedral's 20 Marian murals. But I had an opportunity to go back and capture images of them.
Week 13: St. Peter’s Church
An unassuming church at an unassuming corner — at the heart of one of the most important financial districts in the world. St. Peter’s is a sanctuary of calm and stability in a busy and loud part of this city. But its austere exterior and its quiet, dignified interior belie the key role it has played in the history of this city and the lives of those, Catholic or otherwise, who call it home.
Week 12: St. Matthias Church
The bell tower of St. Matthias, inspired by the religious architecture of the Italian Renaissance, reigns over the heart of the beautiful Ridgewood South Historic District in Queens.
Week 11: Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Church
In week 11, a long walk through Queens led me to a place of beauty, warmth, and respite in a busy corner of Forest Hills.
Week 9: Basilica of Regina Pacis
Brooklyn's third basilica was the creation of parishioners thankful for the safe return of their soldiers from World War II.
Week 5: The Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph
Week 5 of 52 Houses of Worship in 52 Weeks: One of the seats of the Roman Catholic Bishop of Brooklyn, beautifully restored 2012–14 with impressive new artwork.
Week 4: Church of St. Paul the Apostle
The mother church of the Paulist Fathers, the first order of Catholic priests founded in the United States, sits in the shadow of some of New York City’s biggest skyscrapers, but its presence and sheer scale dominate this corner of Manhattan.
Week 2: St. Jean Baptiste Church
A church built by a French Canadian Catholic parish is one of the most remarkable examples of Renaissance Revival architecture in New York City.
Week 1: The Church of St. Francis Xavier
My first visit in my 52 Houses of Worship in 52 Weeks project took me to the Church of St. Francis Xavier, a Catholic church just west of Union Square in Manhattan.
