St Mary of the Angels, Wellington

St Mary of the Angels, Wellington
The 45 year old church was destroyed by fire on 28 May 1918. Total insurance was £2525. On the Sunday following the fire, that occurred during the second year of Fr Mahony as Parish Priest a meeting was called to discuss rebuilding and immediately over £4000 was given or promised. By October a further £4000 had been raised and in April 1919 the contract was let for £27,500 for the new Church – which is the Church that still stands on the site today. The new Church was designed by Frederick de Jersey Clere who has won much respect in recent years for the in excess of 100 churches he designed and had build in the latter part of the 19th and early 20th century, mainly throughout the southern half of the North Island.
It was difficult to take photos inside the church. It was vary dark in there and constrasting from the stained glass windows. Setting used was ISO1600, f/2.8-f/4, 1/30-1/50s


This shot was taken using Nikon 12-24mm wide angle @12mm
