St. Mary's on 5th and H Streets
Looking at the sanctuary. (The crucifixes and statues of veneration have been veiled in violet.)
Looking at the rear of the church from in front of the sanctuary.
The high altar. (At the base of the steps to the high altar is what the faithful affectionally call the "Cranmer table (not seen here)." The wooden altar used for the ordinary form of Mass is jacked up and wheeled out before the start of Sunday Mass in the extraordinary form. At least, no one cemented a new immovable altar into the sanctuary. But, is it not odd that a wooden table without a relic has to be used for Mass while there is a beautiful marble altar. Post-Vatican II insanity!)
The altar rail is utilized every Sunday at the extraordinary form of the Mass.
(Fortunately, being in a poor neighborhood (although that seems to be changing) saved much of St. Mary's from destruction by liturgical vandals.)
The baptismal font (presently within the sanctuary).
The altar dedicated in honor of St. Anthony in the rear of the church - where the Baptismal font used to be! (It was moved by a previous pastor. Notice behind the veiled statue there is a stained glass window depicting the Baptism of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Jordan. Interestingly, there is a confessional screen for the "Second Baptism" of Penance where the font probably once stood.)
The confessional across from the altar of St. Anthony.
(A kind lady explained to me that the confessional was from St. Patrick's on 10th and G. (I don't remember seeing confessionals in St. Patrick's. There was a Reconciliation room near the entrance.) )
Stained glass windows in the sanctuary declaring the title of the church:
Ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.
The four evangelists, also within the sanctuary:
Stained glass windows in the nave:
The altar dedicated in honor of our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.
The current pastor, Fr. Alfred J. Harris, is gradually restoring it. (Anyone who would like to make a donation for the restoration might contact the pastor.)
