At noontime we were heading for an organ recital at the Lutheran Church. We were stopped in our tracks when the bell tower of St. Michael’s erupted in glorious change bell ringing. I had not heard the bells in years, mostly because we have been out of Sitka for years. The Lutherans had to wait while we enjoyed the joyous sound. We arrived at the recital late. After the recital we noticed a sign on St. Michael’s Cathedral saying that for the first time we could see the altar. Each time in the past when I had been in the church the iconostas had been closed. Today the doors were propped wide open and we could see the altar. These are pictures from St. Michael’s.
