This photo was taken of the Westminster Abbey in Mission, BC. This is in no competition with the West Minster Abbey in England, but it bares the same enthusiasm and purpose and is highly regarded as a holy place in British Columbia. The turmoil of blue sky and grey clouds surrounding the Monastery was indicative of life and the Holy Savior.
