There are several interesting and old building in Colusa, CA. so, while I had some free time I thought I’d visit a couple for Thursday Doors.
The first one I found was Our Lady of Lourdes Church with its beautiful bricks, arched windows, lovely steeple, and pretty red door complete with pretty street lamps.
I couldn’t find much about this building’s history other than it was erected in 1880-1881, and
“this historical marker is listed in this topic list: Churches & Religion. A significant historical date for this entry is October 12, 1900″.~ from their website. https://www.hmdb.org/m.asp?m=17492
This post is part of Thursday Doors, a weekly challenge for those that find doors interesting and lovely. Hosted by Dan Antion of No Facilities blog. Head on over to his blog to find this week’s entries of doors from around the world.

Love the red doors! What a beautiful church!
It was good find. I like red doors too.
Beautiful church! Ours recently closed. We are having services through April and then that is the end of it. It will become a Shelter for Men. We already have one for women. Glad to know the building will still be in use.
Oh no! Do you have to find a whole new congregation? Or is yours just moving to a new building?
I just love red doors! Beautifully captured, Deborah!
I like the straight on view of the red doors as we feel like we are standing there with you 🙂
Thank you so much, Yvette! 😀
Beautiful doors and symmetry in this church, Deborah. And I like the gnarly bare branches, too. We don’t find many brick buildings in EQ-country California, so this find is a beauty.
They don’t build them like this anymore do they? Thank you so much, Jet! Have a lovely week-end. 😀
That really is breathtaking, Deborah. I love all the arch shapes and the symmetry. Hugs.
Thank you so much, Teagan! I too loved the arched windows, and the symmetry. 🤗
An absolutely beautiful church, especially the door.
Thank you so much, Jennie!
You’re welcome, Deborah!
Those are perfect doors for a church. The detail they used to put into churches is a thing of the past, I think. Nice to see your photos!
I agree they don’t make buildings of stone like this anymore. Thanks so much, Denise!
I think you found some nice doors for your entry. Lovely old building with great doors.
Thank you so much, John!
Love the colour.
Thank you, Teresa!
Beautiful door, love the color!
Red doors…there’s just something so right about them.
Yes! And even more so ‘cuz red is my favorite color! 😉
A very lovely church, Deborah.
Isn’t it a good find? Thank you, Cheryl!💗
It looks like a pretty rural church. Nice photo, Deborah!
Thank you so much, Belinda!
I’ve always enjoyed decorative doors. Here in New England a lot of old homes have interesting dors but I’ve never pursued it as a project. The door you have shared is very appealing, especially those triangular curved lines in the peak above the door.
Thank you, Steve! Following doors for a hobby is fun and I always learn some history too.
That’s a lovely church, Deborah. I love the doors. I really like how the portion above the transom is divided to mirror the shape of the arched entrance and the shape of the windows. Thanks for joining us at Thursday Doors.
Is was a great find. I love those windows and the arched shape. Thanks for giving us a place to share these gems.
Red and ecclesiastical – it doesn’t get much better
It doesn’t does it. 😃 Thank you, Sheree!
You’re very welcome
So you’re someone who adores doors.
I do like them. 😃
Nice capture; did we ever visit that church during our birding adventures?
Thank you, Gordon! No, we’ve never ventured into Colusa proper but, there are 7 more places that have markers in Colusa that would be fun to see. I’ve seen two of those while driving around but, didn’t stop.
The red doors are beautiful. Inviting and well maintained.
It is well maintained isn’t it. I really like red doors.
Nice! Every feature of the church points upwards. I like the red of the door, matching very well the colour of the bricks. It shows that the good folks from Colusa take good care of their church.
Thank you, Peter! It does look like it’s well cared for.
