Perintown, Ohio, USA

Sometimes, the best thing about a church is its name. The remains of an early Christian martyr, a 14-year old girl named Philomena, were found in Rome in 1802. She spoke from the grave, healed the sick, and offered hope to millions. Her popularity soared in the nineteenth century and many churches, including this one, were named after her. [2010]
