St Joseph's Church

This is St Joseph's Church sketched from a shady spot outside the National Library, Singapore. My sketch was completed during the SG Heart Map Exhibition Sketchmeet of Urban Sketchers Singapore.

I found myself sketching next to a young sketcher from Toronto!

A fellow sketcher holds up my sketch.

St Joseph’s Church was completed in 1912. It was built on the site of the Church of São José. Both churches were built by the Portuguese Mission from funds left by Father Francisco da Silva Pinto e Maia who arrived in 1826 and set up the mission.

In 2005 St Joseph’s Church (built in the Gothic Revival style) was gazetted a national monument.
