St. Michael’s Catholic Church …

St Michaels  2 _ RTP 2 _ 18 Jan 15 _ Flat _ SFW

Here is an interior view of St. Michael’s Catholic Church in downtown Pensacola Florida that I made back around 1982 on 4×5 sheet film.  This is a few that few people see unless they walk up to see the altar.  I do have some altar photos somewhere and when I run across them I will put them up.  I cannot tell you how many wedding that I have done here, but I would guess over a hundred.  One job that my father and I did here was to photograph each station of the cross and made a photo album for a man’s wife who visited the church and could not get over how detailed each piece was.  We also gave an album to the priest at the time which he was thrilled to get, since the only photos he had were a bunch of snap-shots.  I put a link to the church that you can click on to take you to the church’s site.  I was sitting here thinking how the previous post was about a liquor store and then I followed it up with a church post … that was not a ” Sinner and Saint ” message since we are going into Mardi Gras season this time of year.  I just happened to have these two images ready to post and they are in the same folder, so there is no hidden meaning here what so ever.  Like I said in the previous post, if you want to share any memories that you have about St. Michael’s – you got married here or attended a wedding in the church or even attended St. Michael’s School and had First Communion in the church … feel free to share them with us.  Thanks again for looking and please check back … like I said in an earlier post, I have a few more ready to go and I will get them up in the next few weeks … Frank

 

PS – I just went to the church’s site and they have a photo gallery that has lots of photos … activities, interior and exterior views, etc, etc.  I should have done that before I wrote the post, but you know me …

Nursing Group Graduation …

This a photo made at the end of the graduation from Sacred Heart Nursing School which was held at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in downtown Pensacola Florida.  The Bishop in the bottom of the photograph is Bishop Toolen from the Diocese in Mobile.  Not one hundred per cent sure on that, but since there was no Pensacola – Tallahassee Diocese at the time this was made, it makes sense to believe that it was him, but as usual, I could be wrong.  This photo was made in the 1940’s sometime, so it might not be too hard to check on.  Thanks for looking …
