Église St. François d’Assise
Another pleasant surprise as I was on my way to Diwali celebrations on Friday and got lost in the process. But really, is there such a thing as 'lost'? More like finding a treasure! St. Francis of Assisi is this fantastic church on Wellington Street in the west end of downtown Ottawa. Known for its statues, in the two niches you can see St. Francis and St. Antony. One day I will go inside this church without columns (a true architectural feat) to see the others. The first church of the same name was built in 1891, but this larger more elaborate Gothic style church – run by the Capuchin Fathers – was built in 1914 and opened to the parishioners in 1915.
