St Blaise Church - Chasserades - Chemin de Stevenson-2018-D6-17
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Contextual image of the church at Chasserades. I believe it is St Blaise but was not able to confirm this. The church very much dominates the hamlet, having been built on a high point in the area.

Day 6 of 12 - La Bastide-Puylaurent to Chasserades: Walking the Chemin de Stevenson (GR 70 Robert Louis Stevenson Trail) in the south of France.

La Congregation du Saint-Esprit — Window - PARIS-2018-75
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

On our Paris Charms & Secrets electric bike tour of Paris we visited a very interesting church which Eric described as being the oldest in Paris. I believe it was the La Congregation du Saint-Esprit but I am not 100% sure.

It was interesting trying to shoot inside the dimly lit church hand-held with a F4.0-5.6 lens.

The Gravestones of St Bartholomew’s, Lostwithiel, Cornwall, UK - UK2016-92
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

St Bartholomew's Church is a parish church of the Church of England Diocese of Truro in Lostwithiel, Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. The church itself is mainly 14th century.

It was interesting to see the headstones leaning up against the wall of the church and the fence. I assume that the graveyard land has been reclaimed for a new purpose.

Ancient crucifix – Goulet massif - Chemin de Stevenson-2018-D7-12
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

An ancient crucifix near the D120. We passed the crucifix as we climbed the Goulet massif; our first significant climb of the walk. Such crucifixes were a common sight for a few days of the walk.

Day 7 of 12 – Chasserades to Le Bleymard: Walking the Chemin de Stevenson (GR 70 Robert Louis Stevenson Trail) in the south of France.

Basilica of St Patrick - Fremantle , Western Australia - Roman Catholic Churches - (006)
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

This photograph continues my social history project documenting both the mundane and the interesting in the City of Fremantle and surrounding areas through the medium of Waymarking [1].

The Basilica of St Patrick’s Fremantle was established around 1850, the third Catholic Community in Western Australia after St Mary’s Cathedral Parish Perth and the Benedictine community of New Norcia. Till 1894 the parish was served mainly by Diocesan Priests with the exception of the 1850s when it was served by a number of Benedictines who each came for a short time.

Since 1894 the parish has been entrusted to the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. It was their first foundation in Australia and they have now been responsible for its pastoral care for 102 years.

In respect to why it is a Basilica, Wikipedia and Fremantle Stuff are helpful here [2]. There are four major basilicas, all in Rome, and over 1600 minor basilicas elsewhere, of which this is one. It means that this parish is obliged to fulfil certain liturgical obligations, and: 'It should be sufficiently large and with an ample sanctuary. It should be renowned for history, relics or sacred images, and should be served by a sufficient number of priests and other ministers and by an adequate choir.'

It does not appear to be a heritage-listed building which is curious.

St Paul’s Anglican Church, Beaconsfield, Western Australia - #001
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

“St Paul's began in 1892 with the building of the Mission Hall [known as the St John's Mission Hall - see the Western Mail article below]. Weddings have been performed from 1897 until the present day and the Marriage Register is kept with the Parish Records. The foundation stone of the present church was laid on 23 August 1905. The church choir was established not long after the First World War and has continued to the present day. In the mid 1970s St Paul's combined with St John's Fremantle. St Paul's was re-established as a parish in its own right 30 June 1997.” – Fremantle Stuff

The Heritage Council of Western Australia describes St Paul’s Anglican Church “a good example of a suburban Federation Gothic style church, retaining its original form and set in a pleasing collection of late nineteenth to early twentieth century religious buildings, which together form a prominent landmark within a largely residential streetscape.

This is the West Front of the outstandingly beautiful Wells Cathedral.

It's a shame the weather was pretty lousy when we were there last week.
Unlike back in 2004 when I managed to get this shot with my first ever digital camera, a 4.1 megapixel Sony Dsc-S85.

Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Goomalling by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Worshipping is apparently a significant activity in Goomalling with several religions represented. The second place of worship we came across was Scared Heart. A church of the Catholic faith.

A very functional building.
