Brisbane City Sketchers at Sacred Heart Church in Paddington

Sacred heart Church was designed by  GHM Addison and built in 1918 as the third in twenty years for the Sisters of Mercy who’d infiltrated the area to teach children.
The first wooden church built in 1898 was moved across the road to serve as a school and the second church s built.  The second church was built in 1907 but quickly became too small for the ever growing parish, so the foundation stone for this magnificent church was laid in 1917

The interior of the church is beautiful, and has just been restored for their 100 year celebrations
