A Church Like no Other
St. Joseph’s & St. Patrick’s Church
Founded in 1841, St. Joseph’s & St Patrick’s Church is the oldest diocese in the area. Construction started in 1871 and the church was completed by 1882. Originally knowns as only St. Joseph’s the church merged with the neighboring St Patrick’s church in 1966.
Located on 702 Columbia St sits an unassuming Catholic Church, but just like any Catholic Church it is the interior that sweeps you off your feet. St Joseph’s & St Patrick’s church may seem like your usual catholic church but its deep history sets it apart from many others. This year will mark 176 years that the church has been open , but it’s not just it’s history that makes this church special.
Ive decided that I’m going to draw the silhouettes of pivotal women withe a quote beside them to help people guess. I plan to do this on social media every week or month. A day after I post the silhouette with the quote I will post a portrait of that specific woman. The image is a silhouette of Beyonce.
I’ve found a lot of women who have shaped history all around the world, so I am trying to separate them into months for my planner. I’m not sure how to organize them but so far I’ve based it on their birthdays or the the day that they have done something pivotal.
Originally my concept was about grief and its causes, but I thought it was too depressing. My new concept is iconic/pivotal women in history. I’m not sure where I want the final project to go, maybe a calendar or poster.
