Doors Open Waterloo Region 2015 St. John the Baptist Romanian Orthodox Church

Another Church we visited during the Doors Open Waterloo Region tour was St. John the Baptist Romanian Orthodox Church on Bleams Rd. The paintings were wonderful!

Serving the several thousand people of the Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge and Guelph Romanian Orthodox community, the church was designed in the form of an ark, and in 2011 nearly every inch of the walls and ceiling were decorated with magnificent, traditional, hand-painted frescoes and icons, telling the story of Christ in images. The iconostasis wall is adorned with icons and vigil lamps.
