I got a chance after work to visit St. Remy located in Russia Ohio.
This is one post with more to come later. I decided to make this first post something other than altar and stained glass window shots. The church has some great windows that I will feature in another post. Until then here is a close up of the Resurrected Christ from one window.
In the entry way I found this beautiful Baptistery and Jesus Baptismal picture.
Across from the Baptistery was this great Peita statue. This was taken with just light coming through the glass doors off to the right.
All the statues were recently restored by a local artist.

The Stations of the Cross are large arched reliefs inset into the wall.
Station 6 Veronica Wipes Jesus Face
The entire set was worth photographing and I hope to do so on my next visit.
I really like this picture of St. Remy with the stained glass window in the background. I took several pictures before I stumbled upon this one.
The Main Altar had this cloth like curtain hanging in front of a mosaic stained glass window which created this rather unusual affect.
This Cross from on the High Altar also took several attempts before I got the picture that I wanted.
I snapped this one as I was leaving. The inscription reads "Je suis l'immacule at conception" - French for "I am the Immaculate Conception," which the virgin Mary reportedly said to St. Bernadette at Lourdes. (Thanks Kurt for the update)
This was just a fantastic picture outing for me. I am looking forward to coming back and taking more pictures.
