St Thomas the Apostle Bell Tower

My friend Jim, who originally hales from the northeast, and is now a dedicated Phoenician, attends this church  - St. Thomas the Apostle.
In a valley full of uninspiring makeshift places of worship, this is an exception. Home to beautiful art and designed to lift the spirit. When I visited the church, they were hosting a full-sized replica of the "Pieta". - NB
