Church Point is home to the Église Sainte-Marie, a Catholic place of worship. It is both one of the largest and tallest buildings made of wood in all of North America. The length of the church nave is 58 meters, which is 190 feet, and the width of the transepts is 41 meters, which is 135 feet. The church was constructed in the shape of a cross. From the ground to the top of the steeple, the church spire is 56 meters (184 feet) tall. The cross atop the steeple adds another 1.67 meters (5 feet 6 inches). The church steeple was originally 4.6 meters (15 feet) taller; however, in 1914, it was hit by lightning, which necessitated the rebuilding of a portion of the spire.
I was standing there for quite some time to watch the sunset when a car came by. Thanks for helping me make the picture more interesting. A little while after, I started to move again. Time to find a place for tonight!
My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when I was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another. On this site, I want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now I am on the road for more than 8 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
