These magnificent cupolas belong to Holy Protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church in downtown Burlington. One night, we were coming home from dinner and the windows in the main cupola were glowing a bright blue (probably from fluorescent light bulbs?) which was an eerie sight. I haven’t been able to find much information about this church that has been around since 1953.

  1. The Orthodox houses of worship have many domes – however, I really like these as they are different than the usual onion shape arc with these adding angles to the curves and are so stylish. Nice find!

  2. What an interesting combination of classic and modern you’ve found here – those windows could be just as at home in a skyscraper as they are here. Really fascinating – thanks for sharing this with us!

  3. Interesting cupola. It sounds that if they worked at it they could have some nice lighting.

  4. You found a very interesting window/cupola. I like the embellishments too.

  5. Love it….and really love those crosses.
