In honor of the holiday season I wanted to showcase some of the beautiful architecture in our local Minnesota churches. When arriving at many of these churches you feel like you have stepped into another world, a different time. They make you feel as if you are in Europe visiting one of the many major tourist attractions such as Notre Dame or Westminster Abbey. These spaces are a peaceful retreat from the bustle of the holidays. Who needs Europe when you have such wonderful, grand places in your own backyard?!
