Most churches have been rebuilt, renovated, repaired, or re-designed, and what we see is usually the second or third version of the original. This is typical in Caribbean history. It is inevitable, given the corrosive force of nature in the Carbbean. Churches are transitory and temporary, having to withstand tropical cyclones and earthquakes. It is precisely this constant destruction that parishes are fighting to counteract.
