Saw a post on facebook, and it got me thinking about churches of my youth that are either gone or replaced. In my very early youth, our church was St. Margaret Mary in Manhattan Beach in Brooklyn. I looked at it with Google Maps (street view), and it appears to be as I vaguely remember it.
The Church where I made my first communion and confirmation, was St. Nicholas of Tolentine in Jamaica NY. It was long ago replaced by a much larger, auditorium like church. Just not the same in my opinion. Happened about the same time they switched the mass from Latin to English, which probably made it seem more different.
Anyone else have similar thoughts about churches, synagogues, or any other types of houses of worship, from their youth?
