Subject/Title of Window: The Teachings of Christ

Brief Description of Subject: There are five interesting windows in the nave, each one presenting the figures of Jesus in support of one of his teachings. The rest of the windows depicts the manner of which the reaching of Jesus is put into practice.

The first window in the North wall shows Jesus seated as a teacher. Much of the word in the New Testament comes from His lips. For this reason, and because the essence of the entire revealed. Word is Christ. His Sacrifice and His Salvation, John calls Jesus, The Word.

Following this thought the artist has several streams coming down from heaven filled with the image of a fish, a common symbol of Jesus, our Lord.

In the narrow center panel of the window is a replica of the Baptismal font used in the old church as well as a replica of several communion trays.
