Liverpool, All Saints Catholic Church

All Saints Catholic Church is located on the corner of George Street and Elizabeth Street, in the south western suburb of Liverpool. This church, built in 1963, is an example of post World War 2 ecclesiastical architecture with a feeling of gothic inspired simplicity. The sun was breaking through but the threatening grey sky brought the showers thundering down a few minutes later.

  1. You hardly needed to tell that it started raining a few minutes later, the threathening skies in your picture show perfectly that it would.

  10. What an interesting modern take on church architecture. I am guessing, though, from the responses that no one is particularly in love with this style. I love the old stone Episcopal-type church, myself. Those always look inviting to me.

    Happy Skywatching!

  15. Yes, I hear Sydney is having wild weather, gale force winds. Oi.

    Somehow I just can't get used to modern church buildings. Too long in Jerusalem I guess.

  16. Sorry, but I reckon it is the air-conditioning style of architecture.
