Saint Agnes Church in Saint Paul, Minnesota (USA)

The Church of Saint Agnes is a baroque Austro-Hungarian parish located in Saint Paul's historic Frogtown neighborhood.

The 205-foot green oxidized copper "onion tower" is a city landmark, known as the Zwiebelturm.  At night the green clock glows and the tower is bathed in light.

A Solemn High Mass has been sung in Latin on the high altar inside this church every single Sunday, without exception, since the church was completed over one-hundred years ago.

I cannot think of a more interesting parish in the state of Minnesota.  A great many of us received our formation here, including Fr. Z, the famous pioneer of Internet evangelization fame.
