Sunday Church Series - The American Cathedral in Paris



The American Cathedral in Paris welcomes visitors each Sunday by serving cookies and coffee in the back of the sanctuary following the church service.  I've worshipped there on two occasions and and always enjoyed the service and getting to meet the members and clergy.

Today I join James' Weekend Reflections right here!

Those pipes look like they communicate directly with God. Very majestic.

I think the flags do add a lot. They bring the colors of the stained glass throughout the sanctuary. Beautiful!

Jack said...

An American Cathedral in Paris?!?!? Where? Why?

Virginia said...

Jack, Avenue George V. Why , because there are lots of expats in Paris that like to worship here, not to mention tourists like me that love hearing a sermon en anglais! I even heard Olivia de Haviland read the Scripture one Sunday.

It looks like a wonderful place! I hope I remember to check this place out next time I'm in Paris.

«Louis» is pleased to see that you posted this photo of the interior. He was never able to get to the church when it was open, so he has only seen it from the outside.

Virginia said...

Louis,
You must go for services when you're in Paris again.

James,
Bien sûr!!

Austine,
I'm so happy to have you join my blog as a follower. I hope you will visit often. Merci!

Tsuki,
Welcome!

How lovely. I've visited this church but never for a service. I can imagine it would be wonderful.

I agree, the smiles of the "personnel" and the coffee and cookies really add to the atmosphere! :-)
