  9. Such a wonderful church. Such a contrast between the other buildings. Lovely shot!

  10. A lovely building and a great photo, with the scrapers crowding in like that, but I find it incongruous that, someone devoted to poverty should be remembered in such a RICH fashion.

    • Ron,
      I took this info from their website and thought you might be interested in it.
      “For over 100 years, the Church of Saint Francis of Assisi has been more than just a house of worship in midtown Manhattan. It has served as the focal point for untold numbers of people seeking a place of compassion, inspiration, comfort, nourishment and education. Guided by the spirit of Il Poverello, the little poor man of Assisi, we are confident that St. Francis Church will continue to stand well into the 21st century and beyond as a beacon of faith, hope and love.”

  11. Isn’t that a beautiful gem? I’m trying to check out the virtual tour but my computer is having problems loading it. I’ll have to try the other computer later…
