Navrongo Cathedral

We have a new site www.g-lish.org where you can read all articles from This is Ghana in a much more organised fashion. Read Navrongo Cathedral there.

I took this in Navrongo, Upper East Region, Ghana. The church is completely built of mud bricks. I found a little history about it here :
"It's origins date back to April 23, 1906 when Fathers Morin and Chollet and
Brother Eugene arrived at the English military quarters of Navarro (Navrongo) in
Northern Gold Coast (Ghana) with the intention of establishing a Catholic
mission station there under the name of Our Lady of Seven Sorrows."

This building is opposite. Almost looks Australian.
