Church of the Little Flower

This Roman Catholic Church was given the land by the city of Coral Gables in the 20's (the Congregational Church also was given land). Fifty years ago the congregation built this magnificent sanctuary. At the time it was built it was considered to be the cathedral for the area. In that time I have seen a few repairs on the roof but this is the first time that they had to rework the dome. I have seen many cathedrals in the EU that had roofs that were a few hundred years old and none were being replaced. The more formal name of the church is St. Teresa. You can see St.Teresa above the front door. The new Catholic cathedral is is on Red Road about two miles south of Coral Gables.
