St Francis Xavier

Michael John

Oatley, Australia

Artist's Description

This is a bronze statue of St Francis Xavier at Berrima Catholic Church. It is situated on the outside of the church in a small grotto, high up above the door.

As in this image, he is often depicted holding a crucifix.

Built on the site of the convict stockade, the foundation stone for St Francis Xavier’s Catholic Church was laid by Archbishop Polding in 1849. The church was designed by the architect Augustus Pugin, who worked on the design of the Houses of Parliament in London.

In 2008 the church was placed on the New South Wales Heritage Register.

Canon 400D, as is.

Berrima, NSW, Australia.
