U/Alphabe-Thursday

Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Oshawa

U is for UKRAINIAN.

In March, I posted some photos of a Ukrainian Catholic Church here   A block or so south there's another Ukrainian church - The Ukrainian Orthodox Church of St. John the Baptist.

 Front doors

On each door you can see a traditional Orthodox three bar cross.

 Side window

Some light shining through the window revealed orange and blue and a little green glass.

 Side window cropped

 Side window cropped and cross-hatched

Side window inverted

Inverting the colours revealed that blue glass may have been chosen because it's the complementary colour to the orange brick.

Love the door, the crosses, and the pretty domes roof.

Fotolosopher said...

Very beautiful. I wonder what is the difference between Ukrainian Orthodox and Ukrainian Catholic...the latter recognizes the pope and the former doesn't?

A very beautiful church with grand doors and windows. Love the inverted colour version in the last image - highlighting details in a different way.
