NYC (New York Catholic)

My roommate Allen and I decided to make a quick trip to New York this weekend. It was a lot of fun. As we scampered around the city to see the big sights, i.e. Central Park, Times Square, Chinatown, I managed to find a bunch of New York's Catholic churches. I've discovered that I'm getting better at determining if a church is Catholic or not just by looking at it. I was about 65% accurate this trip, I'm hoping to get a little better as I study more churches. In any case, here's what I found.

St. Francis of Assisi Church (W 31st St.)

St. Patrick's Cathedral (Undergoing some renovations)

Shrine Church of St. Anthony of Padua (Grenwich Village)

Capuchin Monastery of St. John (Midtown)

Sts. Cyril & Methodius, St. Rafael - Croatian Catholic Church
I found this church as we left New York on the bus...wish I had some better pictures!

  1. If you go back, I would recommend St. Igantius Loyola on Park Avenue, Corpus Christi Parish near Columbia University, St. Francis Xavier in Chelsea, St. Malachy's (the Actors' Chapel) near Times Square, and St. Michael's Russian Chapel in SoHo.

    Of interest to Washington DC, St. Stephen Church in Murray Hill has a mural by Constantino Brumidi, who also is the artist for the murals in the US Capitol.
