The Churches and Chapels of Kenosha (4)
Just mentioned to my neighbor that I am travelling to Rome, as the neighbor was looking at the accompanying snapshots, stating that this church looked familiar from a trip to Rome. However Kenosha, Wisconsin, the most Italian city in Wisconsin is the home of Holy Rosary, a fine Parish with a Shrine to Our Lady of Pompeii.
An usher informed me that Holy Rosary while built in 1932, has spent over $3 Million on restoration since 2002, making the Church sparkle like new with some very fine restored carvings and painting. New stained glass along with some reclaimed from the closed St. Thomas Aquinas parish look in particularly good shape. Three Cheers for Holy Rosary, a true gem of a church!
