Subject/Title of Window: Blessed Trinity

Brief Description of Subject: St. Patrick used the three leafed shamrocks to instruct the pagans in Ireland about the Trinity. Growing in Michigan’s forests, the Trillia in this window are a beautiful symbol of the trinity. The pure white petals remind us of God’s sinless nature. The three individual petals of equal size and shape joined by one stem symbolize the mystery of the three persons in one God. A small chickadee praises God in song.

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
