St. Mary's Catholic Church looms over the rural landscape. Flat, flat, flat everywhere you look....nothing but corn and soybeans as far as the eye can see. St. Mary's stands at the edge of the town of Maple Park, which is a very small town. The church seems out of place in its surroundings. The building is on the scale of churches in downtown Chicago.

I've never been inside, but can imagine that the stained glass windows are breathtaking.

Oh! I would definitely try to visit the churches. Surely they would let you in to photograph the windows. The colors with light streaming in would be amazing.
