This is the main altar at St. Alponsus, which is a church built by Irish immigrants. It is right across the street from St. Mary's Assumption, where the German immigrants worshipped. St. Alphonsus has been closed for some time; now it is used as a cultural center rather than for worship (except on Good Friday). The building needs work but it would be a shame to lose such a lovely part of our heritage.

Next we headed across the street to St. Mary's Assumption. It is the church where Blessed Francis Seelos served a it houses a shrine to him.
|Lots of people walking today|
