St. Luke's Anglican Church
The Stained Glass Window going in above Altar
 Cross and Crown, a symbol of Jesus Christ
as we are a part of Christ the King Province
An open Bible and a scallop shell, signifying the Apostles' mission to preach and baptize, are alternated within the inner petals

The twelve rose petals contain the symbols of the Apostles with Matthias having been substituted for Judas. Starting at the upper right (at one o'clock) and proceeding clockwise, they are as follows:

Andrew and Phillip:Tradition says that while Andrew was preaching in Greece, he was put to death on this "X shaped" type of cross. The anchor symbolizes the fact that St. Andrew was a fisherman, who had been a disciple of John the Baptist, before becoming the first-called of Christ's twelve apostles. 

A cross and basket of bread symbolize Phillip because of Phillip’s remark when Jesus fed the multitude. John 6:7

Thomas and James the Lesser: Carpenters square, spear & arrows. Thomas is said to have built a church in India with his own hands, and later he was persecuted there and killed with a spear by a pagan priest. James the lesser is represented by a saw, because it is said his body was sawn asunder after a horrible martyrdom.

Matthew and  Jude: Three purses refer to Matthew's original calling as a tax collector. Jude traveled far on missionary journeys in company with Simon, according to tradition, hence the ship.

Simon and MatthiasA fish and a boat hook, because through the power of the Gospel, Simon became a great fisher of men. Chosen to take the place of Judas, Matthias is symbolized by an open bible, and a double bladed battle-axe. He is said to have been beheaded after his missionary work.

Peter and James The Greater:

The crossed keys recall Peter’s confession and our Lord’s gift to him of the keys of the kingdom. Matt. 16:18,19. The scallop shell is the symbol of pilgrimage and baptism, and stands for James The Greater's zeal and missionary spirit.

John and  Bartholomew:

Early writers said that John once drank from a poisoned chalice and was unharmed. Jesus once said that John should drink of His cup. Thus the snake & chalice as symbols for John. Bartholomew was said to have been flayed alive, hence he is usually represented by one to three flaying knives.

Christ the Healer

THE EPISTLE. Colossians i. 3. We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints, for the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel; which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth: as ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ; who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit. For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and long-suffering with joyfulness; giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of saints in light.

THE HOLY GOSPEL. St. Matthew ix. 18. While Jesus spake these things unto John’s disciples, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live. And Jesus arose and followed him, and so did his disciples. And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: for she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. And when Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise, he said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And thy laughed him to scorn. But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took, her by the hand, and the maid arose. And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.
