Montreal Church Doors
Our lock-down regulations are gradually being lifted here and though I do intend to keep a good distance from everyone until we have an effective vaccine, with any luck I think I’ll be able to get out for a doorscursion soon. With that in mind hopefully these will be the last of my recycled doors for awhile.
Anyone who admires doors knows that places of worship more than pull their weight when it comes to delivering lovely doors.
In doing a quick online search I discovered that the island of Montreal alone, has over 650 places of worship. At a pace of one per week that would be enough to keep a door lover busy for over a dozen years!
Obviously not all of them are picture-worthy, but over the years I’ve found more than a few that warranted a quick stop and a walk-around.
This post contains mostly facade shots of some of my favourites.
In many cases I don’t remember their names but I could lead you to each one of them without getting lost 😉
On the Catholic side this is one of the ‘Big-Three’ – Mary Queen of the World Basilica.
If you’ve ever visited Montreal or are ever planning to, this is the one that everyone visits and for good reason. The inside leaves most first-time visitors speechless. None of my own interior shots do it justice but the one on their main webpage will give you a good idea.
Saint-James United on Ste-Catherine Street. This beautiful facade was hidden behind the entrance to another building for almost 100 years!
When the sun hits the gold statue atop this one at just the right angle….
In looking through my old posts I figure I only have about 600 more to visit, so hopefully I can get busy again soon 😀
