Stained Glass


(Designed by Father Methodius Telnack, O.C.S.O)

Over the Altar

The rose window is Jesus, the Divine Mercy, from Sister Faustina’s vision. The three right windows represent the seed, which becomes the wheat, which becomes the bread, which is the Body of Christ. The three left windows represent the water, which becomes the grape, which produces the wine, which is the Blood of Christ.

Christ the Have’s Rest                                                 Christ the Beacon
