I lived in Augusta for 17 years and visited my family there many more times over the years, and had never been inside Sacred Heart until Bill's wedding. Wow, it was sure worth the wait. It was beautiful. Here are a few pictures I took:
This is the outside looking upward. I was hoping to get a better picture from the highway, but it was pouring after the wedding, so this was the best I could get. The steeple goes so high, and the turrets are almost as high.
This is the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The light isn't the best here, and darn that exit sign right above. But this was so beautiful.
This is the altar. It was pretty dark outside by now, as it was an evening wedding, plus the aforementioned storm was still raging. The altar flowers were placed there in memory of our parents. The matron of honor did all the floral arranging and she did a beautiful job.
One of the beautiful stained glass windows; not sure what it's of, but I can see Jesus in there.
Another beautiful stained glass window, this one after the birth of Jesus.
Such a pity this isn't still a church. There's a very holy feel to the place. I felt very close to God there.
