During my walkabouts on Doors Open weekend, I paid a visit into St. Matthew's in the Glebe. My previous post is here. I didn't add this pic into the mix at the time, one of the many stained glass works in the sanctuary. It dates back to the 1950s, in memory of a woman by her husband and children. As is so often the case with stained glass in churches, a scene from the New Testament is the subject.
A beautiful piece of work! You've had some wonderful stained glass shots.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! I always enjoy seeing inside churches, especially the windows.ReplyDelete

Stained glass is true art of a craftsman.ReplyDelete
I like the idea of "Doors Open" and I imagine there are a variety of places to visit. A beautifully colored stained glass windows, which seems to be the style of these marvelous art pieces.ReplyDelete

The shapes of the wood framing are as wonderful as the glass.ReplyDelete

And that sums up the history of the neighbourhood, as it was given as a tract of land for the building of a church.Delete
