Trinity's Stained Glass Windows

Holy Week, Easter, and Ascension

On Maundy Thursday, Jesus instituted the Sacrament of Holy Communion, the Lord's Supper, with his 12 disciples.
God shares his grace with his people through the Word and the sacraments of Holy Communion and Baptism. The presence of Christ in these means of grace is shown by the fish, which in Greek is icthus. The letters are an acronym for Jesus Christ God's Son Savior.

Note: These panels are a tile mosaic, not stained glass. They are located directly below the Lord's Supper window in the chancel.
Golgotha, a hill shaped like a skull, was the site of Jesus' crucifixion on Good Friday. Jesus' cross is the dominant one between two others below and on either side. The crown of thorns, the sponge, the spears, and the dice remind us of the pain and suffering he endured at the hands of his enemies. God's scales of justice were heavily balanced in our favor through Christ's death in our place.
The lily by the empty tomb is a symbol of Jesus' resurrection on Easter morning. The angel announced, "He is not here! He is risen!" Forty days later, Jesus ascended to his Father in heaven where he now lives as Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.
