Fellow Lowell history buff Mary Ann McNamara, did not. Mary Ann found me on Facebook a few months ago, and since then, we've shared a few stories and photos about the city with each other. Being an earlier weekend riser than I dare to be, she went on a walking tour this past Saturday with St. Patrick's Church Parish Historian/ Archivist Dave McKeanand and shared the photos she took there.
I have received a lot of requests over the years to go into churches in Lowell and photograph them. I've always felt strange about as much as trying, and the one time I did try to go into Immaculate (an easy walk from my house and a beautiful church inside), the doors were locked. Mary Ann has, in addition to neighborhood photos, added a few pictures of the inside of Saint Patrick's Church in here. Although I knew it was a Patrick Keely church, I was surprised to see that such a simple-looking church was so detailed inside. The murals are a great detail. She's very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and the parish, so go check it out!
