InSPIREd Sunday - St. Nicholas

If I have the extra time, I enjoy taking the backroads whenever I am going somewhere. Sure, the interstate or highway will get you there faster, but you can miss so much just a few miles from the endless four or six lane wide ribbon of pavement. When I am repeatedly heading to the same destination, the desire to change up the route is even greater for me.

On one of my trips to the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport, I took yet another back road as I made my way over to the interstate. Out in the middle of the country I found St. Nicholas Catholic Church near Carlos, Minnesota. The cornerstone was laid in 1916.

Linking to InSPIREd Sunday - a weekly meme of religious architecture.
