In Harper’s Ferry there is
a little gem. It is not what Harpers Ferry is known for but perhaps it should be one of them.
I loved, loved St Peter’s Roman Catholic Church. I’m not Catholic but if I lived near this church I’d probably be in there several times a week if they let me. It was originally built in 1833 for early Irish immigrants in the area and reflects their traditions.
The climb to the church was a long one. This is a view from the street.

I have pictures of still more steps but I’ll spare you. The exterior is lovely but doesn’t come close to the wonder inside.
Stained glass windows up close:
Here are our costumed guides in the church.
Well that’s it for this post. The interior comes next.
What is that you say?
You want more now?
Oh, ok. Here’s a sneak peak.
The alter at the front of the church.
