Building Name: Holy Redeemer Church

City: Burton

Window Shape: 2 (rectangle)

Subject/Title of Window: 12 Apostles

Brief Description of Subject: The windows in the chapel are self-explanatory. We chose images of the 12 apostles of the chapel because the chapel is used primarily for the celebration of the Eucharist, and the 12 apostles were with Jesus at the First Eucharist celebration. You might notice that the head of Judas is sort of faceless. This indicates that there is a little of Judas in all of us, to the extent that all of us at times betray our commitment to Christ. In this sense, the face could be our own.

Type of Glass and Technique: Opalescent Glass

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
