Church of the Assumption - Ansonia, CTChurch of the Assumption - Ansonia, CT

This beautiful stone church is located in the town of Ansonia, CT.  The church is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year and they contacted me because they need photos to be used in Newsletters, brochures and online to help spread the news about this special occasion.  I love church architecture, especially the traditional gothic cathedral churches that were built centuries ago.  I had previously seen this church from the outside but never inside so I was very excited to see what I would find on the other side of those vivid blue doors...

Upon entering, you are treated to an amazing view of the church's majestic sanctuary.
An artist can be seen on the left painting "The Stations of the Cross."

 

This view looks towards the entrance doors with the golden organ pipes above them.

No church is complete without stained glass windows!

 

Such beautiful and rich colors in this detail photo of the church's stained glass windows

You will appreciate the painter's talent when you realize that this entire statue was completely white before he started!!!

 

I am 6'3" but I felt dwarfed by the gigantic pipes of the organ!

 

Even this unused upper level hallway looks great with its ornate architectural style

 

This huge church was so quiet while I was there, it was just me and the painter and he left shortly after I arrived so I was truly able to take in the ambiance of this place of worship with no one else around.  This church was a challenge in the sense that it is so big and there are so many beautiful things everywhere you look that I could have spent a couple of days here before I'd feel satisfied that I captured all that I wanted.  So there you have it, a mini tour of this quaint "little" church in Ansonia, CT.  Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed the photos.  Is there a church in CT that you know of that is stunningly beautiful?  Share its name and location in the comments, I would love to pay it a visit!  Thanks.

Hi Stephan, thank you for your suggestion! I will see what I can do to try to visit that church and ask for their permission to photograph it.

Be well,

Oscar, if you really want to see a church with gorgeous interiors, then you must visit St. Patrick's Catholic church in Norwich, CT. It is truly breathtaking! I would love to see the photos you create from that holy place.

I lived in Ansonia for many years and went to this church but now I live in the Southwestern part of the United States. These photos make the church look far more beautiful than I remember. The pictures reminded me of the fond memories I have of meeting new people and attending the mass services all those years ago. Congratulations to the church for reaching their 125th anniversary!
