Church of the Week: St. Cecilia Church, Oakley (Cincinnati), OH

 The lovely Robin and I visited a new church this past week, the beautiful and venerable St. Cecilia Roman Catholic Church on Madison Road in Oakley (a Cincinnati suburb). We were there for a concert, which was featured briefly on my Hither & Yon blog. The Gothic structure was erected in 1928 and gives every indication of being home to a happily thriving congregation.

 The dual doors (and their elaborate brasswork) at the front entrance of the church are beautiful, as is the interior of the cruciform sanctuary (below).

The structure has been receiving quite a bit of restoration work in recent months, as stonework, stained glass windows, and roof have all received attention. Huge scaffolding is still in place at the rear of the sanctuary, but the work is apparently winding down, and is expected to be completed by Easter.

The pews couldn't have been less comfortable, but in every other way our visit to St. Cecilia's was warm and enjoyable.
