Catholic Churches Big and Small
Written & illustrated by Stefan Salinas
Have you ever been inside of a Catholic church? Travel with a boy, a girl, their father and a nun as they explore the Catholic churches within a single city.
It’s a celebration of religious art and architecture - from the historic, to the modern, to the simple, to the ornate... We will encounter special furniture, statues, shapes, colors, stained-glass windows, murals, tapestries, various cultures,... We will learn why we attend church, and much, much more!
