Installation of the restored stained glass windows
Having requested and underwritten the relevant costs of accompanying the completed windows, the Bartallou brothers visited Trinidad and installed the windows with the help of their trainee one week before the Feast of Our Lady of Montserrat in September 2004.
Fourteen Stations of the Cross adorn the walls of the Church. They are distinctive since they are ‘turn-of-century’ paintings with European characters depicting the Passion and Death of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. They are encased within wooden frames which complement the architecture of the church and the description of each station is written in French below each painting. Over time, the paintings remained intact but darkened in colour as the patina of age accumulated on the surface. The frames deteriorated at a pace that was in keeping with the pace of deterioration of the actual church building. A decision was subsequently taken to undertake the restoration of all of these stations.
