Cathedral of St. Helena
Saints around the front door.
When we first arrived at the church, there was a funeral Mass in progress. We just sneaked in the side door and attended the service. After all the mourners had left, the volunteer guide gathered everyone that was there for the tour and took us on a tour. He was very thorough and very knowledgeable. He wasn't even from the area but his son lives here. He and his wife attend Mass during the summer and he started doing the tours for them during the summer. He and two other people share the volunteer times. I don't think there was a question that was asked of him that he couldn't answer and we appreciated his expertise very much.
Baptismal Font at the front of the church facing the altar.
The marble in this font is also priceless as this type of marble is no long available.
The front alter. It has the one window that wasn't done by Zettler. It is a medieval design and really doesn't go with the rest of the church although it is is pretty. It isn't spectacular!
The light fixtures are in front on almost every window which is exasperating
when you are trying to take pictures. The neat thing is that when they put the
sound system in, they put the speakers in the bottom so they don't have wiring everywhere.
