Doors Open Waterloo Region 2015 – Young Chapel
The Young Chapel is in the Mount View Cemetery in Cambridge. It was a real treat to get to explore the inside of this rarely opened jewel.
Unchanged and rarely opened, this chapel boasts beautiful original exposed-timber roof, stained-glass windows, chandeliers and woodwork. See the original basement vault and two-floor casket hoist system. The exterior features superb stonemasonry, original lighting and a slate roof. The chapel was built by the family of James Young, local businessman, journalist and MP in Canada’s first parliament (1867).
I came across this tomb stone in a cemetery in Toronto. The inscription struck a chord with me. I think it reflects what a lot of us may be thinking about our life and faith.
This was taken at a Mennonite cemetery. The shadows caught my eye as we drove by and I had to stop and take the shot.
