St. Alphonsus Roman Catholic Church commands attention at the top of a hill overlooking Sydney Harbor in Nova Scotia, Canada.  It was built in 1916 and closed less than a century later in 2007.  Since then, it’s been fighting to avoid demolition and today it’s fate hasn’t yet been sealed.  There’s a tentative plan to sell the church to a restoration group, but the financial dealings are not all in place, so time will tell.
