The church is lovely and the location is beautiful. I still have to be convinced about new buildings though. I love the old churches and the original church shape. Diane

I'm sure that I have driven past this church when I lived in the LA area – it's a stunning and impressive place.

Congratulations on your book releasing in September! Such wonderful news, Ann.

Wishing you a lovely weekend.

I'm not always keen on modern architecture but this certainly looks wonderful. The interior is divine.
Hugs to you dear Ann! xx

Hi Ann, Were your ears burning? I recently talked to someone about your blog--and all of the St. Nicholas churches...

This one in CA is quite different from most, isn't it? That is one fancy church.. Very beautiful. Bet they have a large congregation.

Have a wonderful week, Ann.

This is a beautiful church. The exterior is much more modern than many of the Orthodox churches I've seen. The interior is gorgeous.

Hi Ms. Ann
what a lovely Greek Church in California. I did one of my Sunday Steeple Post on a Greek church near us. Very similar architecture.

We had no idea you were writing a book!! OMC and it is about to be published. Mom recently bought a iPad she will have to look into purchasing your book either in hard copy or for her iPad.

MOL MOL MOL....I'm so proud to read that some of my bad habits have rubbed off on Edward!! My theory is life is short eat dessert first and jump on every flat space you can!
Hugs Madi

HE IS RISEN INDEED, and we can celebrate that ALL YEAR LONG! HI ANN!!! So nice to see you today and thank you for the encouragement. I am excited to see the journey unfold as I venture out into new circles to help me at least be exposed and learn. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BELIEVING IN ME!!! Hugs, Anita

Hi Ann
Thank you so much for wandering over and leaving such a kind note.. So happy you enjoyed the bird's.
Have a question... Did you recently post, or ever post on a church in Huntington Beach by the name of St. Mary's by the Sea..
A few weeks ago I saw it somewhere on the net.. Thought it was your blog but do not see it...
Anyway, the reason I was so surprised and happy to see this church is because I used to attend that church... I lived just two blocks away when my children were little. Sure is a small world.
Wishing you a beautiful week.
