The Great Brisbane Church Tour

by Quailia Nothing March. 22, 2013 665 views

I was taken on a tour of the Churches of Brisbane, which makes a lot of sense given that last time I visited I was taken on a tour of graveyards.

This is the stained glass window in the most recent bit of St John's Cathedral, it's a lousy photo but the stained glass does include Einstein's “e=mc2” equation and the chemical symbol for water.

The whole church is lovely, but if you walk through it looking at the stained glass windows it's like a walk back in time as they were all made in different periods.

This is from the grounds of St Stephen's Cathedral, it's a bit hard to see but there's a modern glass and metal cloister-styled entrance which is lovely.

The cathedral is on the right, the building on the left is a chapel, containing a shrine to St Mary MacKillop, Australia's first saint. Apparently it was the first schoolhouse in Queensland (or Brisbane??)

The fabulous sculpture of St Mary MacKillop. I lit a candle at her shrine for a friend of the family's who died two weeks ago.

Not a church.
