InSPIREd Sunday - St. Anthony

On one of my drives back and forth to Minneapolis-St. Paul airport, I took yet another route through the countryside to get there. It is a great way to see something different and to find churches. Spires are so easy to spot in the wide open expanses of farm country and this one was no exception.

I am not exactly sure how, but St. Anthony is connected to Seven Dolors that I previously shared. I guess because the community of St. Anthony is less than 6 miles from Albany where Seven Dolors is located.

A brief history of the church can be found here.
