"Upon This Rock..."

Built in 1844, from great blocks of Quincy granite, is the former Church of Saints Peter & Paul in South Boston. Gridley J.F. Bryant, son of the famed railroad pioneer, was the architect on this Gothic revival church. This was the first Roman Catholic Church in South Boston; it was closed in 1995, and turned into condos.

This brings back some memories. As a boy my older brother and myself used to sell Sunday newspapers outside of this church. The Pastor at the time did not like us out front so we had to move up to Mul,s the next corner up on Broadway.
