Église Saint-Merri

Lovely organ music lured us into this small gothic church near the Le Centre Pompidou. People were assembling and handing out programs, so we hurried past to get a peek at the architecture in case we were crashing an event.

Many of the confessionals were empty with the exception of a few chairs here and there. As I neared the organ, I saw a student/teacher scenario that made me smile.

    This is making me homesick although I was just back this summer. Beautiful photos.

    What a lovely old building, though it looks like it could use a bit of TLC.

    That is one of my favorite churches in Paris. They always have events and different art or educational installations there. Beautiful pictures.
