The Mission Hill neighborhood is really close to our house so I was doing a little exploring. This is The Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, known locally as Mission Church (where Ted Kennedy's funeral was held). One of Boston's wonderful hidden gems http://www.themissionchurchboston.com/ [themissionchurchboston.com] I've been meaning to for a while so I finally went inside. Absolutely gorgeous. Easily one of the most gorgeous churches in a city full of gorgeous churches. This picture hardly does it justice, but moments later, it was time to put the camera away.
