Saint Mary's Church, Waterloo Park


Then we come across the stained glass window that, in my opinion, is the best among the jewels treasured in our Saint Mary's church. The quality of its colour and design makes me think that it could have been produced by the prestigious firm Clayton & Bell. The window, created in loving memory of Francisca de Sampaio, wife of F.Golthurst, who died in 1887, depicts "this woman who was full of good works and alms deeds which she did". Once again, we are in front of a most delicate and very feminine composition whose characters transmit kindness, gratitude and hope. A truly beautiful window indeed!


10. This kind and generous lady is giving food to a pauper.
