Descent Of The Holy Ghost

A few shots from Doors Open last month. Today we visit the Descent of The Holy Ghost Romainian Orthodox Church on Seminole Ave, just east of the intersection with Drouillard.

Built in the 1930’s the Church features an onion dome, and during doors open, the congreation allowed visitors inside during a baptism.

The Church is laid out in a cross pattern

I was shocked at how small it was on the inside. From the street it looks larger than it is inside.

The amount of art work on the screens behind the altar are simply outstanding.


Also be sure to tune in today at Noon on CJAM 91.5, as I guest host Scaledown radio with Chris Holt.

Today’s show is a litte different as it is pledge break time.

We’ll have A-Channel’s Jim Crichton and CBC’s Tony Doucette in studio with us, as we talk about the importance of community radio, and a bit about how they got into brodcasting.
