Cathedrals oldest piece of furniture

The oldest piece of Furniture at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Port of Spain is the pulpit. In days before amplified sound the priest or Bishop would climb the pulpit to deliver his homily. Nowadays it just adds character to the old building.

The images decorating the outside of the Pulpit are of an Angel, Lion, Eagle and ox. These represent the four writers of the Gospels.

Matthew the Angel

Mark the Lion

Luke the ox

John the Eagle
