This modern, spacious church in the Mountainside area of Burlington was built between 1963-65 under the Resurrectionist Fathers as a bicultural parish for the Polish and Canadian Roman Catholic community in Burlington. The great window at the front “projects the image of the Resurrected Christ over the congregation”.

  1. Not only is the window impressive but so is the shape of the the church.

  2. That is just beautiful – thanks for sharing it! I’m always a sucker for sloped rooftops, and that is a particularly impressive one 🙂
    Have a great week!

  3. Oh, I love this…it has lovely lines.

  4. Great church. I didn’t know there was a mountain in Burlington!

  5. This church is beautiful! The unique architecture is stunning, the roof shaped like the dutch girl’s hat is lovely and the external bell is so different than if it were hidden inside a steeple. That stained glass window on a sunny day will bathe the worshipers in glorious colors. This is a great find!

  6. Lord let me be in that number when Gabriel blows his horn.

  7. Beautiful church — I bet that window is impressive from inside as well.
