For those of us who long for a sunny day this January, here’s a photo taken on a sunny day last summer of a Russian Orthodox church in Jackson, NJ. I had taken pictures of it two years earlier, but on that day it looked so pretty I knew I had to stop!
Today, I drove by two Russian Orthodox churches in Jackson, NJ. They were strikingly beautiful with their onion domes glittering in the sun, so unlike other Christian churches that we are used to seeing.
St Mary’s was dedicated in 1955 and has undergone several expansions and renovations since then. It is surrounded by a cemetery which belongs to the other Russian Orthodox church, St Vladimir Memorial Church located less than a mile from it.
Construction of St Vladimir Memorial Church began in 1938, but for various reasons, the church was not fully completed until half a century later, in 1988.
