Shrine of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne

On Friday, October 8, 2010, I visited the Shrine of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne, located on the grounds of Sacred Heart Academy in St. Charles MO.

The Sacred Heart is on the building too

St. Peter

I don't know about you...but the metal poles above the altar
frighten me
Pit and the Pendulum?
Might encourage good behavior though...

(I think...)

The others were like this but yellow, red and orange.
