Church Tour, Round #1

  • Jul 12, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

On this tour, we will be visiting the Shrine of St. Joseph and another church (yet to be named). From the Shrine's web page: "This beautiful old church, at the corner of 11th Street and Biddle in St. Louis, Missouri has a vast and interesting history. The church had its beginning in 1843. The Jesuits founded the parish to serve a pleasant residential community consisting mostly of German immigrants. Also, the church is the site of the only authenticated miracle in the Midwest." We'll meet at the Shrine at 10:00 and spend 60-90 minutes photographing interior, exterior, and enjoying history on the building. Please do not go in prior to 10:00 as that is our designated time.

Shoot Scoop: Perfect opportunity for wide angle, fish-eye lenses, and your tripod. Tilt-shift as well if you have one. I've not been inside this building, though the docent said we can bring whatever equipment we like. :)

If I'm able to confirm the other church for Noon, I'll post it and send everyone a note.

    What I like about going places like this and seeing everyone else's photos is all of the ideas I didn't have. So much creativity and so many different points of view.

    This was one of those easy to underestimate how good the event would turn out. Looking at the photographs it was amazing. We could easily have spent another 2 hours on site. So much going on. Another great event :-)

    What a great turn-out! So nice seeing everyone and the Shrine was a lovely, beautiful, and inspiring surprise. Lunch at Bailey's Range a bonus!

      Thanks, Laura. Every now and then, it just "acts up," like it has been doing this past week. I'm hoping in the next day or so it will be much better!

    I'm not familiar at all with the area so does anyone have any suggestions for parking? This will be my first meet-up so I'm really not sure what to expect but looking forward to a new experience:)

      There are lots down there, but these are private, for the individual apartment buildings. They usually are gated, but if they are opened, you shouldn't park there. Note that the City of St. Louis does charge for metered parking on Saturdays. I think most of the metered parking is on and closer to Cole Street, but I think streets further north, closer to the church, are not metered. But, bring quarters just in case.

    This sounds interesting, but I'll be volunteering at the MS Muckfest in Herculaneum, so I can't make this.

      Sometimes you just gotta do that - catch you soon I hope!

    Kathy, I'd like to go to this but won't know until Saturday morning. My bad leg has just been bothering me lately, and I need to make sure it is ok before I go. I won't sign up, now, but will if I decide I can make it. Hope to get to go and see the church and everyone else.

    Update: I wasn't able to secure a 2nd church for tomorrow, however we can hang out for lunch after this one if you like. :) Bailey's Range at 920 Olive?
