I'm not religious, but I love a beautiful church. I also love finding the unexpected in places that I thought I knew well.

These two things came together last week when I was walking past the Cathedral of St Stephen on Elizabeth Street in the city. On impulse, I decided to step inside, out of the blazing heat. I found myself in a dim, cool vestibule, with only this contemplative stone angel for company.

Mass was in progress, so I didn't venture any further into the church. But I'd like to go back and take a closer look at its beautiful interiors and stained-glass windows. I also noticed that quite a few workers were enjoying their lunch on the lawns surrounding the cathedral. It made me realise that our city churches can be small oases of calm, even for those of us who will never attend a service.
