A wonderful series with beautiful photos, I am always happy to see a new episode, especially since you treat each church not only from architectural viewpoint, but also with regards to its community, history, liturgy, etc.

Just a small correction of a typo: you write “Since then the Creations have maintained…” which is of course correct because we are all God’s creations, but should probably be Croatians.

As for the heads on the facade, they were probably there before the Croatians arrived to the parish, but still, check out this detail from St. James Cathedral in Sibenik.

You also write “how the old country was 75 years ago” with regards to dressing and behavior in the church. That is very true. Not surprisingly, when we were starting Traditional Latin Mass in Zagreb three years ago (still the only publicly celebrated TLM in Croatia), we had help from Croatian emigrants and their children (not from US for now, but still, from Europe and elsewhere).

I saw this Church from a bus driving out of Manhattan thru the Lincoln Tunnel. I really wanted to learn more; it is a splendid sacred building in the midst of pure chaos. So, thank you for being so informative based on a search of: “Church” “Lincoln Tunnel” “Catholic”!
