Wordless Wednesday - Seminary Finds


All of today's photo's were taken at Immaculate Conception Seminary located in Lloyds Neck, NY. This Seminary had been training Catholic Diocesan priests for over 75 years. It is is situated on the famous "Gold Coast" of Long Island on land that comprised two family estates back in the "Gatsby" days. Hand painted fresco's abound throughout the space. This particular one is located above the door leading into and out of the crypt chapel.





Showing some of the intricate hand painting on the ceiling in the crypt chapel.



This is one of the stalls located in the crypt chapel. Each one is dedicated to a particular saint. The priests say private Mass in the stalls.



This beautiful rose window is hand made stained glass. It is located in the main chapel over the choir loft.



The artwork is phenomenal as the picture above shows.

Pssst. "Wordless" means, umm... well, you know. *wink*

Glad to see you back, and with an impressive collection of eye candy too! I especially love the window shot.

I've always loved stained glass and church/mosque art. I have some recent photos from a church from the same Chicago visit that yielded those wintergreen pictures. I need to find a way to share those photos of things that are unrelated to my blog's theme.

Happy WW

Thanks for sharing and for coming by my blog! It was a pity I missed this when I was in New York a couple of years back. Will definitely be in my book of consideration when I go back.

I love the rose window - I bet when the sun shines through, it throws pretty colors on the floor.
