Subject/Title of Window: Trinity, The Holy Spirit

Brief Description of Subject: This rose window is located high up in the sanctuary. It is the last of three that together will illuminate the Trinity. This window pictures the Holy Spirit symbolically.
In the center of this window is a descending dove with a cruciform halo.
The descending dove as a symbol for the Holy Spirit comes from Matthew's version of the Baptism of Jesus. Matthew 3:16 NRSVCE, "And when Jesus had been baptized, just as he came up from the water, suddenly the heavens were opened to him and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him."
The halo formed by a cross enclosed in a circle, known as a cruciform halo, is a special halo that is reserved for a member of the Trinity.
The window was donated by Anthony and Lucy Dyczewski.

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.
