Saints Cyril and Methodius Church, Dubina Texas  by louannwarren

Saints Cyril and Methodius Church, Dubina Texas

This church was built by Moravians who settled in Texas in 1876. It was destroyed in a 1909 hurricane and rebuilt in 1912. A priest wanted to modernize it in the 1950’s and whitewashed the walls, covering the exquisite painting and stenciling. In the 1980’s the parishioners decided to remove the whitewash. It took several years to restore the painting to its former glory. I liked that the paint buckets are visible under the sanctuary stairs, a silent testament to the congregation’s determination to restore the church’s gorgeous interior.
Great collage and wonderful story. Very nice it was restored

What a beautiful church! I'm so glad they restored the artwork- although I thought Moravian churches were a little more austere. Excellent collage Lou Ann!
