Stained Glass in St Peter's Church


Following up from the recent post Inside St Peter's church here are close-ups of the five Belgian stained glass windows by Carponnier (1889). Click on the images to open up the full-sized photographs.

The outer left window depicts St Petrus (Peter).


The inner left window depicts St Mary.


The middle window depicts the crucifixion.

It carries the wording
"These windows were placed here to the glory of God and as an affectionate memorial of the Revd Henry Wright and Mary Catherine his wife by their daughter Julia Catherine Wright 1889."

The inner right window depicts St Johannes (John).


The outer right window depicts St Stephanus (Stephen).
