We are truly blessed to have such a beautiful place to pray. It’s especially great when the sun is out and the windows are bright.
Looking at the windows – I thought I would offer a little home project for all of you. First part can be done at home. Second part is for when you come by to visit the church.
- Why is there a chariot surrounded by flames in the window the Ascension?
- Why is there a phoenix in the window of the Resurrection?
- What do the letters O P N mean in the St. Maria Goretti window?
- Why does the window of St. Frances Cabrini have a dove with an olive branch in its mouth? (extra credit)
- Why is there a pomegranate pictured in the window of the Resurrection?
- What does the P, F, S stand for in the St. Patrick window?
- Why is the coat of arms of Venice in the window of St. Pius X? and musical notes?
- Why is there a black cat pictured in the St. Jean Vianney window?
- A little donkey face in the window of the Descent of the Holy Ghost?
- What do the letters “C, G, P, L, B, B, F, B C” in the window the Descent of the Holy Ghost stand for?
When you visit the church:
Which window has
- symbol of Egypt?
- A caterpillar – cocoon – butterfly?
- The only Sacred Heart image in the church?
- God the Father?
- An evergreen tree?
- the company and names of the artists who made the windows?
- Which window has the word “corona” in it?
- Roosters? (there’s two)
- A box of Gold?
- A child getting ready to be confirmed?
- People sleeping in it (there’s two)
How can you tell which thief is the good one, and which the bad one?
