Mindful moment

Beautiful place and very quiet church. Most beautiful area during the summer, but with snow in the winter worth seeing as well.

I don't go to churches that often. This one I visited as my kid's school Christmas mass was held here. As a church it's pretty basic, traditional one I think.

It was originally built on a sea shore but land rising has lifted it up far, far away from the sea. A good example of once upon a time built roman catholic churches in Finland But the times changed. Nowadays, after the reformation, it is a lutheran church.

If you like to see old churches or perhaps just enjoy the silence this might be a place for you. Old rock walls and long wooden bench. Nothing fancy but typical old Church close to Helsinki. Easy to access (1 km walk) from Espoo center railway station.

The most important churches for me in the world. My "homechurch" where a lot of sorrow and happiness has been lived. A place for silence and giving your self time without everyday stress. If you are closeby don't hesitate to visit!
