Our Lady of the Snows, Fox Glacier
We were on our way to Lake Matheson when we saw this little church. Stopping to take a picture we saw the door was open to Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Church. Mabel parked, in we went.
The dedication stone.
This tiny little church had a big welcome and was really bright inside.
Always lovely to find the door unlocked. Simple and traditional.
After a good look round we went to look in the small cemetery.
In the porch Bear loved this picture of His Holiness because his eyes are twinkly and he looks mischievous.
A bimble and a read.
A new one on us was this glass memorial, sadly to babies lost.
We then read the plaques on the wall.
Such a setting.
ALL IN ALL SUCH A LOVELY LITTLE CHURCH
