Minnesota is home to hundred’s of beautiful and iconic Catholic churches. The architecture and design of some of the churches date back centuries, but most churches in the state were just recently constructed. Here are the top four most visited churches in Minnesota.
1. The Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church- This iconic structure is easily recognizable for its towering pointed spires. The Hennepin Methodist Church, built-in 1916 bears a characteristic gothic architecture. The building’s central spire spans many meters into the clear skies and it once made the church to earn the title of the state’s second tallest building.
2. Assumption Chapel in Cold Spring- Renovation work on the chapel was completed in 1951 after the original structure got devastated by a tornado. In the 1870’s millions of grasshoppers had invaded the region and they ravaged the farms of the locals. History has it that the locals decided to build the original chapel to commemorate the end of the grasshoppers’ plague Today, many locals simply refer to the gothic-architecture inspired church as the Grasshopper Chapel.
3. The Mighty Fortress Christian Fellowship Church- Established in 2008, the Mighty Fortress Church has given thousands of followers an opportunity to share with each other and grow their personal salvation. The San Antonio-based fortress is a family church that regularly organizes Christian events for its patrons. For instance, on the 18th of September, the church held a men’s and women’s bible study seminar. Worshippers assemble on Wednesdays for the midweek church services starting from 7:00 PM.
