Our Stained Glass Windows - Eucharistic Window


The Eucharistic Window

 

This touching window was donated by the Reverend Clinton Blake in 1957 in memory of his young wife, Elizabeth Wall Blake who died at the age of 37. Its inscription in Latin reads, “Requiescat in Pace” which is a wish or prayer for the repose of the dead. Rev. Blake served as rector at Trinity from 1953-1957. He is credited with saving the church as it was near closure. Along with growing the church he made improvements by extending the altar steps, carpeting the chancel and sanctuary, and had new kneelers installed. We continue this loving and steadfast care of the church to this day.


The window depicts the symbol of the eucharist, the Christian sacrament of holy communion. It features the dove as the holy spirit descending with the red cross signifying Christ and sanctifying the bread and wine by the power of the holy spirit. At the moment of presentation these words are said, “Sanctify them by your Holy Spirit to be for your people the Body and Blood of your Son, the holy food and drink of new and unending life in him. Sanctify us also that we may faithfully receive this holy Sacrament, and serve you in unity, constancy, and peace; and at the last day bring us with all your saints into the joy of your eternal kingdom.”


Amen
