The Sacred Heart Church AKA “The Jesuits” in the Crescent in Limerick City is today’s image from the Lawrence Collection. An unusual church, in that it doesn’t have a steeple, a tower, or anything higher than the statue in the front. Given the passage of time and the changes in vocations, is it still there?
