Brief Description of Subject: Window has been re-purposed to the school entrance of St. Paul on the Lake in St. Clair Shores.

Scripturally there are many verses about the existence of a guardian angel. For examples: Exodus 23:20 "See I am sending you an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared" or Psalm 91:11 "For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways".  Artists can give free rein to their imagination in picturing a Guardian Angel. In most pictures they are watching over a child or children.

Description of Window: This Guardian Angel, standing behind a child, is giving a blessing with his right hand while his left hand is holding the child's left hand. The Child has its right hand on its heart.

Inscriptions: Donor's name is no longer visible due to damage at the bottom of the window.

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
