Stained Glass Windows

The church has twelve late 19th century-stained glass windows made in

St. Louis, Missouri.  The windows are composed of opalescent and painted stained glass and are rich in Christian symbolism.  Grapes symbolize the wine of the Eucharist, wheat symbolizes the bread of the Eucharist, and the lamb with flag represents Jesus in his role as the perfect sacrificial offering.  Additionally, the anchor symbolizes Christian hope, stability and faithfulness and the lily symbolizes the grace of God and the resurrection of Jesus. 

St. John is prominently depicted above the altar.  Many of the windows in

St. John’s Church are dedicated by patrons to their departed loved ones.
