Catholic Church

© 2009 Steve Kelley


St. Michael's Church in New York City (NYC)'s midtown area. Is a Catholic parish founded 1857, serving what was then an Irish immigrant neighborhood; the building dates to 1892. Michael is not a human saint but an archangel; in some traditions he is the conveyor of the souls of the dead, like Charon, which is why he appears in the spiritual "Michael, Row Your Boat Ashore."
