Most welcome Carl!

A most welcome addition to Cathcon blogging!

Saint Paul's Basilica, Toronto, Canada.

Hello everyone, I'm quite new to posting on blogs, so please bear with me as I learn how to do this. I will be posting from time to time, presenting photos that I have taken of historic Catholic Churches here in Canada. I hope you enjoy!

I will start with some pictures of Saint Paul's Basilica in Toronto, Canada. This present church was built in 1888, replacing an older church which was destroyed by a fire in 1886. The present Saint Paul's is built in the Italian Renaissance style by Joseph Connolly, a prominent architect in late 19th century Canada.

Some pictures of the interior.

The beautiful facade.
