Sketches for San Simon Church



Several Sundays ago, I accompanied Fr. Roberto Martinez, a priest and Aanglidesh staff, to his small church, San Simon, in Joconico, an hour outside of Tegucigalpa. It is located at the end of a road so rough, that I wasn't sure the four wheel drive pick-up would make it. But it did.

The view into the valley, which will be seen
from the new church.
The picture is taken from the road.


We met in a small school house to celebrate the Eucharist. 

Afterward, we went out to see the site for a new church. It is a beautiful location in a valley between the mountains. 

The church design, based on the simple features of colonial Spanish mission architecture,takes advantage of this view.
