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.








Trinity Sunday



For the Epistle. Revelation iv. 1. After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes before and behind. And the first was like a lion, and the second like a calf, and the third had a face as a man, and the fourth was like a flying eagle. And the four living creatures had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. And when those living creatures give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, the four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are, and were created.


Gospel. St. John iii. 1. There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: the same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
