St Brigid's


St Brigid's Roman Catholic Church, Ottawa
1889


note the two different towers -
the spires are galvanized metal and not only are they different in height, but one is French styled and the other is more Russian styled.
and, as you can guess by the name, it was an Irish church!


it is now used as a Centre for the Arts





for InSPIREd Sunday

Very pretty. I used to live in Ottawa but don't seem to know this church. Or perhaps it is just my poor memory.
