Located just a few miles outside of Minster on State Route 364 is Egypt. Not much there but St. Joseph Church, built in 1887.
There I met with David (The German Egyptian) be sure to check out his blog. His family originally owned the land that the church now sets on.
It was great meeting and talking with David. He had some great history on the church. Unfortunately my senior brain doesn't hold much, so I am hoping to get back with David, with pen and paper at the ready for the next post.
The above picture is one of my favorite side altar shots. The church was full of great photo opportunities. And as usual I flubbed some of them. I will definitely be coming back for a re-shoot.
There was this great stained glass window with Mary and Joseph fleeing to Egypt that will have to wait until the next post. However I was real happy with the way this one of the Institution of the Eucharist came out.
Both David and I thought the expression on Jesus' face in this one was rather interesting.
This church has plenty of stained glass windows big and small. This one of Jesus praying in the Garden in one of my favorites.
I'll close with this window that I found very interesting. To me it looks like Mary, Baby Jesus, St. Therese, and Veronica's veil. Not sure how to connect the dots on this one.
Click the link provided by Maria for the Story of St. Therese. It explains the window quite well. Little Flower
Look to see Return to Egypt in an upcoming post soon.
