    No matter where God resides, there will be your beauty. I just thought it would be interesting to see if others have photographs of their church altar and if they would show them. This is St. Anne's Church in Escanaba Michigan.

    This is altar at my parish
    Jesus the Good Shepherd, Owings, Maryland
    Not exactly the greatest photo or perspective
    But it was the day after the Crowning of the Blessed Mother and I was touched,
    Especially by all these motley bouquets that must have pleased Our Lady

    Don--I have been there!! Three years ago I was staying with my cousin who lives in Bremerton!! Amazing. I looked at the picture before I looked at where it was. And I thought wait a minute. I have seen this.
    I have a devotion to Our Lady as Star of the Sea. I love the hymn Ave Maris Stella.

    Heavenlyhost, it's very beautiful and I can feel from the picture the love that was put into preparing your church of celebration. :)

    Every church, chapel, and cathedral that I have seen so far is amazing! The care put into all the preparation and arrangements show their love for the Holy Trinity, &Mother of God. There is a quiet group in all these places that take care of the sacred altar cloths, altars, floral arrangements.... these wonderful people deserve our prayers and thanks for their devotion. :)

    All of these sacred places have helped us to develop our love for God
    This such a great thread
    To know where our MOG friends worship
    And yes
    There is a quiet group of workers and maintenance in the background

    It's a small world AED :) We really love this Parish and especially the Priest there, but really everyone has been very welcoming and helpful. It is a bit of a drive for us but worth every mile.

    I would love to see all of these Churches in person. They are all beautiful!
