The St. Peter window, given to the Glory of God and in Loving Memory of Joseph J Walls, portrays the Fisherman surrounded by the symbol of this Saint.

As you view the window, you will see directly above the right shoulder, A Dove, the symbol of the Holy Spirit.
To the lower left of the figure, a Flagon is portrayed symbolizing the Holy Communion.
To the right of St. Peter, you will aww the always present symbols of the Saint, the Keys of the Kingdom.
