I've been accused of a lot of things, but this is a new one. From the Project's mailbag:
I just looked up the status of St. Boniface Church. It has been closed since 2006. The photo you have on your website is NOT the St. Boniface Church on Diamond and Hancock Sts. Where I the steeple????? I would know that church anywhere. Please update your photos. St. Boniface was the most beautiful church I have ever been in. I made all of my sacraments there and was devastated that is closed. I was fortunate enough to have a guided tour before it closed. I very nice brother let my soon and me wander all over. I even got to see behind the scenes. Can you tell me what the long term plans are for the building. I hope they are not going to tear it down. Thanks for any information you can give me
You would know that church anywhere? Apparently not, since the church in the photo is most certainly St. Boniface. It's spire-less and a little ravaged by time, but very much the same place. If you go into the images section, there are even photos of two--count 'em, two-- signs on the building that clearly display the St. Boniface name. I'm guessing you just simply haven't been here recently.
Trust me on this one. Whatever flaws the Project may have, mixing up pictures is not one of them.
But if you still don't believe me, here are two images: one aerial and one ground, courtesy MSN LiveSearch and Google Maps, respectively. They show Diamond & Hancock Streets in West Kensington, and the church is the same:
As for the fate of the building, I have heard nothing; as far as I know, it's still undergoing the Long Goodbye and waiting for either an owner or a bulldozer. If anyone else has any news, drop us a line.
