Until the 1980s, the small town of Maple was a quiet, conservative and protestant village on the outskirts of Toronto. Then construction of new housing developments started, the population of the village exploded with new arrivals and in 1992, the first Catholic church was built with services in both English and Italian. There are some interesting stained glass windows, though I could find no information on them. It was difficult getting a good shot without reflections of the neighbouring trees and shopping mall, but I will show more of them next week.

  1. How interesting to put the windows in the corner like that, I’ve never seen anything like it! I like the angel shape that they create. Really neat, thanks for sharing this!

  2. This is a dramatic looking church! The corner windows are unlike the tall and muscular stained glass styles on a 500 year old European cathedral – but equally full of drama as the old ones were. Nice find!

  3. Must look great when the sun shines through it. A certainly unique design. Please have a good Tuesday.

  4. That’s nice…quite different from many Catholic churches! Thanks for visiting my windows and doors last week!
