Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes and almost as many churches has many beautiful churches – inside and out.
To name a few with beautiful outsides:
Basilica of St. Stanislaus, Winona
Built in 1893, its influence comes from old Rome with a Polish Cathedral style. Stunning red bricks capped with white cathedrals make a perfect contrast to its stained glass windows.
Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, New Ulm
Also built in the late 1800’s (1896), this church is distinguished by its tall bell tower front and center, drawing church attenders to come. And inside, the intricate paintings and apse make one stand in awe and invites them to come in.
St. Thomas More Catholic Church, St. Paul
St Thomas More gives us yet another example of the breadth of diversity of church structures that are found in Minnesota. On Summit Ave in St Paul, it is an historic building amongst historical buildings. Made in the classic Romanesque Revival style, it stands strong – looking more like a mighty fortress than a house of worship.
These are a few of the churches built to invite worshipers in as they stand in awe and wonder of the mighty God they would be celebrating.
But it’s not the structure of the building that impresses God himself. It is the truth conveyed about him to all people – yesterday, today, and tomorrow. And this is the beauty found at Mighty Fortress International – that which come from the beauty of Scripture – showing victory and purpose of life in surrendering to God and his plan.
