    That's a wonderful photo of a heavenly church! We wouldn't mind a look inside the sanctuary through your camera lens….

    The interior was painted a beautiful peach/saffron and 'gilt' last time I attended mass in 2003 (I moved to Cape Town…). It is truly a beautiful building and is worthy of Cathedral status. My paternal grandmother's side of our family were all baptised and confirmed here – she later grew up in the Nazareth House.
