Have you ever noticed the beautiful stained glass windows inside our Church?
Each piece was designed and hand made by Paul Pickel of Pikel Stained Glass Studio in Vero Beach.

Left of the Altar

The Immaculate Conception
The top portion symbolizes the Immaculate Conception with the 12 point starry crown and the rays of sun over the crescent moon. (Apoc 12:1) The lower portion symbolizes the Nativity with the Star placed  at the top of  a stable above the manger. In the manger is the straw and the Chi-Rho which is the Greek abbreviation representing Christ.

The top portion shows the Epiphany star with the three crowns of the Magi. Below are symbols of the gifts which they brought: Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh

Right of the Altar

The Chalice with the pointed cross symbolize the Agony in the Garden at Gethsemane. In the center of the window, a cross is depicted with a crown of thorns. There are instruments of torture in the lower section that represent three nails and scourges.

In the upper portion is the Gates of Heaven with the Sunrise of Easter below. The Easter lily is growing from the empty tomb. In the lower portion, the Holy Spirit above the tongues of fire representing Pentecost and the beginning of the Church.

Main Sanctuary

The Coming of the Holy Spirit
The cross and orb represent the spreading of the gospel. The Holy Spirit is represented by the descending dove. The water of Holy Baptism flows from the escallop shell while the fish symbolize the Christian faithful who receive the Sacrament of Baptism.

The Holy Eucharist
The open book and cross symbolize the spreading of the Word of God. Wheat and grapes symbolize the Sacrament of the Eucharist.

The two horizontal windows above the main doors represent an uplifting spiritual feeling.
