Brief Description of Subject: A ship under full sail signifies the Church in mission. Early history symbolized the Church by a ship. The missionary journeys of Paul by boat and the fact that many of Christ’s disciples were fisherman make the ship an appropriate symbol.
The Budded Cross
The symbol of life and the two great commandments “Love God and Love one another” (Mark 12:30-31) point out the vertical and horizontal direction of genuine love.

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
