The Catholic church of Saint Patrick in Herberton, was built in 1889. Mass was in progress when I stopped to take some photos, I’ll have to go back to see if I can have a look at the interior.
The Campanile! Manual operation, I’d say.
The Campanile has a tall neighbour.
A simple, but well maintained chiesa
I like the wooden lace work
Nice bright colours were chosen for the paint and the windows

“The campanile” – LOL!
Btw do you know that wonderful word ‘campanilismo’? I only came across it earlier this year and the description I read then made it sound like a positive thing – pride in your local area – so I was quite keen to adopt it! But I’ve now found my mini-dictionary translates it as parochialism, which is obviously not so good. What do you think?
Caroline, I shan’t tell the Herbertonians that you laughed at the name I gave their bell tower!
I reckon if you use ” campanilismo” in the right company, and hide the dictionaries, you’d get away with it. I like that word, also.
Yesterday I went to Saint Anthony Church in Padua for the Feast of the Sanit: nothing could be more different from this church!!!
Oh, what a contrast, Daniela! I want to go back and see if I can get in when there is no mass, but a lot of our churches are firmly closed most times! Ciao, bella.
And, it’s in a pretty setting, also. They were singing hymns to a guitar accompaniment, while I took the photos … nice!
It’s very pretty.
I love everything about it! A bit different than those we explore in Venice 🙂
That’s what I was thinking, when I saw it, Barb. I’m keen to see what the inside is like, but it may not be open when I expect it to be!
