Saint Joan of Arc in San Ramon, California

Had a wonderful day at Saint Joan of Arc Parish in San Ramon, California today. 18 RCIA ministers gathered for a morning of sharing and input.

Here are a few shots of the statue of Saint Joan of Arc that stands outside of the church entrance:







There is a large clear glass window, etched with an image of Christ right behind the altar in the sanctuary. I took this photo looking right out the window. When sitting in the pews, all one sees is the mountains:



The font is placed in the very center of the sloping aisle, in the center of the church. This is the view from the sanctuary; you can see the altar cloth in the foreground.



And a close-up of the font:



Just a great day here in northern California.

Tomorrow it is off to South San Francisco for a repeat of today's workshop. Finished my handouts for the NPM workshop on "Music and Holy Week" this afternoon.

Until tomorrow.

Gotta sing. Gotta Pray.

I used to go to this church when I was a kid. The statue left a real impression on me and I'm very grateful that you took and upload such great pictures of it, as well as Mt. Diablo. Thanks, have a good day!
