St. Sebastian Part 2

More pictures from my trip to Saint Sebastian. Just a few closeups of the main altar and some more beautiful stained glass windows.





There is no shortage of stained glass windows in this church besides numerous saints lining the walls there our several traditional windows.




Matthew 16:18-19 (New International Version)
And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."


At the back of the church are two large composite stained glass windows. These windows compose of a large angel at the bottom with a medallion of the church at the top. One is in memory of the church when it burned down in 1903 and the other the consecration of the new church.










I'll close with this wonderful Lamb of God window.

A little research and I answered my own question.

Matthew 16:18-19 (New International Version)
18And I tell you that you are Peter,[a] and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades[b] will not overcome it.[c] 19I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be[d] bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be[e] loosed in heaven."

Thanks Bob,

The church address is 3280 County Rd 716A St. Sebastian. Between Chickasaw and Carthagena off of St Route 274 in North West Ohio.

You can really do some steeple chasing in this area. From this church you can see St. Charles Seminary and St. Aloysius. If you go there you will see St. Henry's steeple. Across from St. Sebastian you will find St. Rose flanked by the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. John the Baptist Churches, not to mention the National Marian Shrine of the Holy Relics is located here as well.
