Believe it or not I am interested in more things than gardening and building hydroponic grow systems. I am also interested in the beautiful and unbelievable architecture in building churches and the steeples that are part of them, that reach up into the heavens, bringing glory to God. The other day I had the opportunity to see some in the town of Portsmouth Va. I had to go to the Naval Hospital there to get a nuclear stress test. That's a story of it's own. I was headed there and noticed a huge steeple above the other buildings. I made it a point to go there when I was finished with the test.Here is what I was seeing: St. Paul's Catholic Church is a historic Roman Catholic church located in Portsmouth, Virginia. It is a compact Gothic Revival style, cruciform plan church. It is constructed of load-bearing masonry walls clad in quarry-faced granite. The church was designed by John Peebles (1876-1934) in 1897, and dedicated in 1905. (source: Wikipedia). So here you go, a nice picture of it.
