St. John Vianney Chapel ~ Kenmore

While I was “on the coast”, besides spending time with the Mennonite Girls in Canada, I was able to have some extended time with our Coast Kids. On Thursday afternoon my daughter-in-law and I were able to visit this chapel in Kenmore where she and her family have a lot of history. The chapel is now a part of Bastyr University which is an alternative medicine university. I’m happy that they have kept the chapel in tact. St. John Vianney church have built a new church further down the road from this location. The stained glass windows are amazing works of art. I hope they will always be preserved.

After we spent time in the chapel we drove past our former home in Kenmore and were a wee bit disappointed in the upkeep of the property. Laura’s parents have also sold their homestead in this past year and we had the same feeling when we drove past her childhood home.

Later on Thursday evening we had a tasty dinner at Josh and Laura’s with Andrew, Katie and my sister Lana and her husband Steve. I was so pleased that we were able to have this time of fellowship together while I was in town. On Friday I got some alone shopping in and when Katie was done with work we spent a few hours together and met up with Josh for dinner, too. My time on “The Coast” was filled to the brim with what matters most.

Linking up with Angie at Letting Go of the Bay Leaf for Mosaic Monday.

I’m catching up after being away from home and this will be a busy week into the weekend, too. Hopefully I’ll have some good pockets of time to visit my favorite blogs. Hope you all have a good week ahead.

  1. Ellen – everything about this chapel is heavenly – stained glass, the tile mural, the icons. It seems that becoming part of the university is a blessing in that they probably have the money to ensure that it is preserved. As for visiting prior homes, it is a practice I don’t follow – it usually leads to disappointment – sorry that has been the case for you! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday and enjoy your week ahead!

  2. Wonderful photos of the chapel and the stained glass windows are incredible. Sounds like your trip was a real blessing. I wish you a nice week.
    It is often hard to return to a previous home and see the changes. I’m thankful you both are enjoying your new home and property and making it your own.

  3. Those stained glass windows are so amazing. It took a lot of time and skill to leave those. Thank you so much for sharing them with us.
