Trinity’s Stained Glass Windows

Above the altar in the sanctuary are the windows pictured above.

The center window depicts the ascension of Christ, surrounded by celestial light.  A few inches above the head a bright red light in the window reminds us that we are not redeemed with silver and gold, but with the precious blood of the Son of God, who loved us and gave Himself for us.  On either side of the center window are two adoring angels who invite us to join with them in the eternal praise of the Son of God. 

 

In the nave, on both sides, are 10 sets of windows.  The front 2 are pictured below.

To the north, (left) and behind the choir pews are three windows: The center one is of St. Paul with his face showing the stress and strain of his life. 

To the south (right) and in the baptistery are three windows:  The larger one portrays St. Peter.  St Peter was crucified.  When they informed him that he was to be crucified, he answered, “Do not crucify me like Christ, with head up, but with the head down”—thus, the inverted cross in the right window.
