Charleston church steeples and WV State Capitol

This is a shot I've always been meaning to get. Unfortunately I can't claim this idea, since many local photographers have done this scene before. This is looking east from downtown at the State Capitol dome, which at this exact location is juxtaposed perfectly with several East End church steeples. I wasn't 100% happy with the lighting on this evening, since the setting sun was being filtered through cirrus. I plan to shoot this scene again this week as lighting/sky conditions permit.

I recognize all the steeples except for the dark brown one in the foreground. Which church is this, please?

Hi Pam, the dark brown steeple is on the Sacred Heart Catholic church. It's a smaller 'secondary' steeple (their main one is out of the picture to the right).
