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.

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.
