Building Name: St. Charles Catholic Church

City: Newport

Window Shape: 3 (arched)

Date of Window: 1946

Subject/Title of Window: Pentecost

Brief Description of Subject: Arched window depicting Pentecost. Holy Spirit in form of Dove descends on six Apostles and Our Lady, who sit or kneel. The tongues of fire are in the rays shining from the Holy Spirit, not yet over the Apostles' heads.
Shield at bottom of window depicts Holy Spirit in form of Dove. Part of a set of fifteen windows depicting the mysteries of the Rosary.
Protected on exterior by Lexan. Form says Lexan was installed in 1946, but Lexan had not been invented then, so this is likely a mistake, intended only to say that the window was installed in 1946.

Condition of Window: good

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
