St. Alphonsus, Peru

St. Alphonsus, school, church, priest house. Taken around the late 1800's i think.


While i'm fired up about things, just let me say this...NEVER destroy the past to make way for a "brighter and profitable future". That's just a bunch of bull. If you live in Norwalk, you know what i mean. Historic church? Parking lot? Hmm...which sounds better?

Someone needs to tell these people, who are about twenty years out of date in their thinking, that preserving the past is like money in the bank for any town. Just look around you at towns like Grand Rapids. I remember people using a similar quote in Pennsylvania, back in the 60's and early 70's. Now, most people would gladly kick their tails for the damage they caused.

Alex,
What's your take on the Century House?

And why weren't you wearing a red shirt yesterday like the rest of the students? Don't you have Spirit with capital "S"?
