The building had originally been simply adorned. In the 1930s the Browne family of artists created murals, which in succession around the nave, present events in the life of Jesus Christ from the proclaiming of his birth to His death and resurrection. Pictured is The Resurrection; it has the caption 'The third day He rose again.' The interior paintings and artwork of St. Jude's were designated a national Historic Site by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada in September 1999.
