Irvington – Sacred Heart of Jesus

A harmonious design in the Gothic Revival style, the church is constructed of steel reinforced concrete. The facing is a hard pressed pink mingled iron spot brick with Indiana limestone used for trim, pinnacles, finials, gablets, and buttress caps. The roof is finished with a variegated slate of ranging colors. The tower is 90 feet in height.

The windows were executed in New Jersey by artists trained in Germany. The interior is trimmed with limestone pilasters, colonnettes and buttresses. The fields between the pilasters are finished with low toned caen stone with a wainscoting of scagliola. The floor is done in terrazzo. The main altar, reredos, communion rail, side altars, stations of the cross, and pulpit all were designed by the architect as part of the church and were executed in marble and mosaic by artists in Italy. – Adapted from description by Anthony J.
