Subject/Title of Window: St. Anthony's School

Brief Description of Subject: The window was originally located at St. Anthony's School. When the school was torn down the window was repurposed to the Church and is to be found over the entry way from the narthex to the nave.

The medallion in the window shows an image of the Franciscan friar St. Anthony of Padua looking at the Christ Child that he is holding in his arms --- when St. Anthony was on his death bed a friar asked him what he was looking at and St. Anthony said "Jesus". This has become one of his main attribute as well as dressed as a Franciscan friar.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact donald20@msu.edu
