Under Construction :: A LEGO Cathedral, Phase 2

by | Jan 21, 2016 | Lego | 14 comments

Last week I shared Phase 1 of the LEGO Cathedral that Ranger is building. This week I have some additional pictures to share with you which were taken last July and August, after stocking up on some more LEGO from eBay and a local store. 
It wasn’t nearly enough to finish the project, but he did make some more progress, and some modifications to the original design, before putting the building on hold again until after Christmas. 
One of the first modifications was to increase the height of the bell towers. 
Next he moved the large clear windows up higher and added smaller stained glass windows below. 

Inside the cathedral, you can see the beginnings of the Stations of the Cross, seven on each side.

He then added pillars, making sure you could see each station in between the actual pillars.

They look so pretty, especially at certain times of the day when the sun is shining. 
He is hoping to add a large stained glass window to each side, if he is able to get enough 1×1 and 1×2 transparent LEGO. Since Christmas he has been able to make more progress on the walls, and begin construction on the roof.
Just around the corner from the cathedral Captain set up the Palace CinemaPet ShopParisian Restaurant, and a family of tourists in the Camper Van checking out all the sites!

    Ranger – This is absolutely brilliant!!!! Your building techniques and ideas are so creative! You have a keen eye for so much detail and in scale! LOVE the high altar and grade of the steps and my husband LOVES the choir loft and organ (he is our parish organist and has a degree in sacred music, btw)!!! The stained glass windows are wonderful! Are you going to have them along the side walls, too? This is brilliant gothic-style! You should submit this completed project (when you get it all done) to Lego Ideas (check out their website) and put it up for vote to try and get it as an official Lego Ideas set! WELL DONE!!! Can’t wait to see the finished project!!! 🙂 Thank you, Jessica, for this post!!!!! 😀

    Haha! Our church is building a bigger church right next to the old one and that is what it looks like minus the camera crew. And the pizza is possible. 🙂

    Porta potty’s and pizza 😉 The detail and thought of this design. The communion rail almost made me swoon. A future architect or engineer lives in your house. I would email father and the church committee this post for ideas. The “modern” built church’s that are built make me cry.

    This is so great! All those details really show what you have taught them about churches and buildings whether by actual teaching, taking them to beautiful churches or the opportunity to read about such treasures. What a grace! You will treasure these things all your lives. This is a real inspiration. Thank you for sharing.

    Wow! Those boys are so creative! And what a good sense of humor Captain has. I especially like the guy he picked for the news interviewer. LOL!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
