A Galway Church

St. Augustine's Church
I thought a church photo would be appropriate this Sunday morning. In looking through my photo archives, I found a folder with a hand-full of photos I took in St Augustine's Church. Located just off the pedestrian street in central Galway, I think this is probably a church that a lot of people overlook when they visit Galway. It's neither the big, relatively new Catholic Cathedral of Our Lady Assumed to Heaven nor is it the historic Anglican St. Nicholas Collegiate Church. It is, however, no less beautiful, full of lovely stained glass, wood, and white arched pillars. But the image below is what caught my attention...

This unusual metal three-dimensional crucifix is suspended from the ceiling by thin, almost invisible wires. Hanging in front of the colorful, stained glass arched window it adds a contemporary layer to the beauty of the church interior.
