St. Mary, Millersville

Above, "Jesus is Stripped of His Garments." The Stations of the Cross at Millersville are paintings from Cologne, Germany, according to the parish history.

The church was dedicated in 1921.

The architectural style is Flemish-Gothic.

Nativity window above the main altar. The parish was first called "the Nativity church of Greensburg" in 1859. (A road nearby is Greensburg Pike.)

Many of the pews are from the previous church building.

Just north of the church is a new winery, Chateau Tebeau. If you look in the photo above, you can see the steeple in the middle above the grape vines. There is a limestone quarry across the road, and limestone makes for happy grapes (so I've read).
