This church sits on the West side of Harlem and the 10:30 mass I attended seems to have a great deal of school children attending. I feel I missed out on something, however, as the priest directed the bulk of his sermon toward the kids.

Lent has fallen upon us and I have finally given up for these next 40 days what I feel is one of my deepest pleasures - drinking. I don't feel it will be hard at all - I feel it may be deeply enlightening.

*Coming back today to snap photos I realized this church is absolutely gorgeous, more so than I remember, and definitely more than the original photos above did justice.  I hope these do a little more...
