The Sacred Heart 's art

Flemish stain glass windows, est.1882, Church of the Sacred Heart, Trinidad, West Indies

The sexton of the Sacred Heart church in Port of Spain was directed to the founder who laboured thirty years to see the building complete. A brass etched plaque acknowledged Hailas Greenough as the person responsible, est. (1882) and this discovery came about after a brief tour of the church in Port of Spain. She explained that the stain glass windows are a fine example of Flemish work depicting the motifs of the christian prophet. There is also a series of paintings related to the Stations of the Cross. The works on wood still retains its beauty, although they are matted with dirt caused by the city's pollution.
