Building Name: Church of the Divine Child

Studio Name: Willet Hauser Architectural Glass

City: Dearborn

Window Shape: 2 (rectangle)

Subject/Title of Window: Bapistry/Holy Spirit

Brief Description of Subject: This window is located in the original baptistery for this church. It has since been replaced by a larger one in the narthex.

In the middle of this window is a descending dove. Matt.3:16 "After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Holy Spirit descending as a dove and lighting on Him. In baptism one receives the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Comment from "Our Stained Glass" c.1970. In the rear of the church in the baptistery, you can see some of the most colorful and charming bits of stained glass that exists in our area. These tiny windows are favoured with an almost ideal setting for stained glass and they certainly are equal in their fortunate setting. Each panel of glass carries in it a very appropriate and time-honored symbol of the sacrament of baptism. The windows are as charming as can be and merit the viewer's gaze as frequently as possible."

In the bottom right of this window is the logo for Willet Windows now known as Willet Hauser Architectural Glass.

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.
