Mascot, St Catherine Greek Orthodox Church

St Catherine Greek Orthodox Church is located along Coward Street, in the eastern suburb of Mascot. The parish was formed in 1980 with services in the hall of St Therese's Catholic Church and a year later in the former Anglican church on Tunbridge Street. This building, completed in 1994, is a little difficult to photograph entirely so this was the best angle I could manage.

  4. It's a good angle. There's a church here that's also difficult to photograph, but beautiful to behold. The one you've got here really looks stunning.

  7. Although built in 1994, this church offers a classic shape, not too ornate but with a great dose of spirit. A lovely house of worship!

  10. Any angle is fine, as long as there are pronounced shadows---and there are!

  12. «Louis» imagines that the interior is quite striking as Orthodox churches seem to have very ornate interiors.

    In contrast, «Louis» found this church, built in the 19th century, in tiny (pop. 188) Elmira, California.

  13. Nice shot! The arches throughout and the domed tops have a pleasing appearance.
