Ganghwa Anglican Church, South Korea

Jacob Paolo Legarda sends these photos from the Ganghwa Anglican Church of St. Peter and St. Paul, also known as Ganghwa Cathedral located at Incheon, South Korea. He writes:

“I'm in Korea representing the Anglican Church of Australia on a working group to organise a regional youth gathering in 2020. The church is on Ganghwa Island... very close to the South/North border. It's considered by many Korean Anglicans as Korea's holy island like Iona because it's where the missionaries landed and where (amazingly) many priests and nuns originally come from! So apparently it's a spiritual powerhouse for vocations.”
