The church found on 1892 as the first catholic church building in Korea locates at Jungrim-dong, Jung-ku. The church building was burnt by arson attack on February 1998. Renovation was completed on September 1999.
In the morning it rained a little and cloudy. We went inside the office building where we could see the church through a big pane glass at the comfortable lounge. What a lucky day it was inspite of bad weather! We used the space freely. After sketching some we went inside the church building and did one for each. Every time we sketch despite of all bad conditions we get some valuable things which we never imagined before we begin. We enjoyed all the calm mood of the church and even the weather too. Thank you all!
