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.








5th After Trinity



EPISTLE. 1 Peter iii. 8. Be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:  not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips, that they speak no guile.  Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers:  but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.  And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?  But, if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye.  And be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled. But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts.


GOSPEL.   St Luke v. 1. It came to pass, that as the people pressed upon Jesus to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, and saw two ships standing by the lake:  but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.  And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land.  And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.  Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.  And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing:  nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.  And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes:  and their net brake. And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them.  And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken: and so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men. And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.
