[PHOTO] Two photos of St. Nicholas of Bari Catholic Church

St. Nicholas of Bari Catholic Church, at 1277 St. Clair Avenue West in the heart of Corso Italia, is a bit of an unusual church, built to fit into the streetscape of this traditionally Italian-Canadian neighbourhood. Still, the stained glass windows stand out, even from across the street at twilight.

This is the second time that I have taken a photo of the “Jesus Saves” sign at Faith Impact Ministries on 1780 St. Clair Avenue West; the first take is here. The starkness, of the sign as much as the message, is eye-catching. What, I wonder, will it look like come lush warm green summer?
