Drones in Catholic Churches!!! This is a pretty awesome story. I hope they can find a way to share the footage – St. Michael’s and St. Stan’s are 2 of the most beautiful churches around.

ROCHESTER — Watching a drone glide through the skies is still not an everyday occurrence, but seeing one flying through a church is even more rare.

On March 11, Chris Dominicos guided a drone down the center aisle of St. Michael Church, a worship site of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Parish. Equipped with a camera, the drone captured video and photographs of the church’s ornate stained-glass windows. The windows were designed in the late 1800s and are worth millions of dollars, according to Father Mickey McGrath, the parish’s copastor.

A four-story hydraulic lift operated by Mike McBride was being used to supplement the drone’s photographs of the windows’ details, which have not been seen close up since the church was built in 1890, McBride and Father McGrath said.
