A rather blurry view of the sanctuary, waiting for Mass to begin. To secure a seat close to fans, I arrived almost an hour early. It was worth it.
Lining up for the veneration of the cross.
While waiting in line, I had time to admire the stained glass windows.
From the Stations of the Cross in the church parking lot.
5th Street (adjacent to the church) full of hopeful vendors looking to make a sale to the throngs of churchgoers. All this week at Mass we were warned that thieves and pickpockets would also be among the vendors so to be vigilant.
A much better shot of the parish and the statue of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
