Subject/Title of Window: The Promise of Baptism

Brief Description of Subject: The three Triangular dormer windows are an expression of Graceā€”in the past, present and future of the Church. The East window is the baptismal window, representing the future of the Church, in its newest members. The baptismal window uses sculptural elements and prisms - images of water and light - as a symbol of the sacrament. The windows were designed, full-sized and hand painted by Sarah Hall with technical assistance and installation by Helga and Norbert Sattler. Lamberts full antique glass was used exclusively with traditional glass paints for the windows. All of the work was done in Canada.

Type of Glass and Technique: Antique or Cathedral Glass, Lead Came, Vitreous Paint, Silver Stain, Jewels or Cast Glass, Etching or Sandblasting

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
