St Mary's papel picado

Saint Mary's Episcopal Church, Northfield VT, the Sunday after All Saints' Day, 2 November 2008. Taken by Anne C. Brown, Communications Minister of the Episcopal Diocese of Vermont.

The last row of banners are ones congregants made with names of their loved ones; the church is an 1843 building; I love the juxtaposition!
