But it does appear this altar suffers from cancer:
I think the inmates in that prison did what they could do in the workshop. A fine job of converting an interrogation cell into a worship space.Seriously would guess local talent for a poor congregation. Would hope so.
My thoughts given the bright colors used is that it a poorer Latino or Filipino parish in a leased building/office space/strip mall or mall, and, again, making do with what they can do.Could be wrong about everything, likely am, so, any background to go with the photo?
Brings to mind Salvador Dali.
The Oratory, in the village of Ringaskiddy, County Cork, Ireland, was a 19th century temperance hall before being turned into a Catholic church in 1923.
Ah, the Mexican Irish. One would think it has not always appeared this way, even as a church. Everything inside appears removable, which is why I guessed a leased property. I suppose they could pull out everything quickly for a clogging competition. The very bright statuary is why I guessed non-European, so, I was at least right as to being wrong.It at least is too small for indoor golf.
Interesting. I can see that the base of the altar is a tree trunk, but the top doesn’t look like an altar stone. Also that is a cross on the wall, not a crucifix. Where is the tabernacle? There are no candles either. I started to think this must be a Protestant church, but then I saw the statues and especially the one of Mary. I can’t figure out what that large brass item is either.
I think the tabernacle is embedded in the wall directly under the cross. The brass thing appears to be a votive candle Stan using actual candles, a custom in many eastern and western rite churches.
