InSPIREd Sunday - St. Aloysius

St. Aloysius Gonzaga is a 16th Century Italian Jesuit saint. He is the Patron Saint of Youth. St. Aloysius Church is adjacent to Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington - makes sense now!

  1. There is something special about old churches with 2 spires like this. It is a beauty.

  2. Certainly makes sense to built beside a university a church dedicated to the patron saint of youth.

  6. This is bit of a departure from the churches you usually spotlight? Grander maybe? It is a very dignified church and all of the exterior ornamentation complements to basic architecture. Especially admire the rose window.
