Basilique S Pie X

It is difficult to disagree with Mac (Mulier Fortis) who insists on describing this Basilica as an underground car park. Built in the 50s when pre-stressed concrete was the latest thing, it accommodates over 10,000 people and is full this morning for the International Mass.

The Stations of the Cross are in a modern design but the interior is really brightened up by massive banners of various saints. These are either photographs or representational art and do much to relieve the interior.
