Roman Catholic Church of our Saviour

Happy 2014 to everyone! I hope that you have the best year ever! While I was walking on Park Avenue, I came across this beautiful church, the Roman Catholic Church of our Saviour. The outside was really quite stunning, all the work involved when it was first built in 1955.  
The design was by Paul C Reilly, who had been known to design some of the Manhattan theaters. How great is this entrance with the gorgeous red door?  
Another red door on the side was just as spectacular.  



The inside really took my breathe away 

The ceiling was really remarkable  









I wish for all my readers the utmost health, happiness and success for the year 2014. I thank you all for stopping by the blog, and I hope you continue to visit. Be sure to tell your friends who love New York City they are always welcome to stop by!

Today's Words of Wisdom: “We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.”

Great church. My nephew was married here in 2012. No matter who walked in the rich colorful ornate design grabbed you and like a lil kid was looking all around...no one was sitting straight with hands folded. Haha
