St. Joseph’s Church interior, Liepaja

10 votos
The first, very small church was built at this place in 1762. Its parish grew in the course of time, and in 1900 the church was re-built to its present size and shape. Only one part of the church has remained unchanged from the 18th century – what was once the central altar became the left side chapel.

Here you can see a ship model, which is a typical feature of seaside churches of those times. Ship captains used to hang such models in the church either before going to the sea, asking God for a safe journey, or after their return, as a gratitude for successful trip.

Today it is the largest Catholic church in Liepāja and the official residence of the bishop of Kurzeme. Anyone can lit a candle here and enjoy the sacral atmosphere of the church.
