Church of St. Michael the Archangel

PrettyDowntownChurch

This beautiful Italian church was built in 1902 by Italian Immigrants. It is located in downtown in what used to be the heart of Portland’s Little Italy.

In 1961 Portland’s Urban Renewal movement abolished Little Italy. The church is undergoing restorations! There is a committee to bring back rich Italian culture! They are working to build an Italian American Cultural Center!

I love all things Italy and have always admired this beautiful church when I see it!

Hugz and Happy Saturday!
