Mary Help of Christians, Aiken SC
I went with a friend to nearby Aiken, SC yesterday and visited his home parish, St. Mary Help of Christians. A truly beautiful 19th century structure ... the apsidal mural is particularly gorgeous, with the symbols of the twelve apostles. The parish has outgrown the church, and most Masses are in a large hall across the street. Daily Mass and at least one of the Sunday Masses (I think) are still celebrated in this beautiful church.
I had no idea that the title of "Help of Christians" was given after the victory at Lepanto!
And can someone enlighten me: what's up with these compartmentalized baptismal fonts?
