1971

Three-light window. Below the standing figures are scenes depicting the sacraments of baptism, eucharist and confirmation.

technique: stained glass
size: 38 cm (width of each light)
firm/studio: Celtic Studios

Church of St Gabriel, Brynmill, Swansea
west wall of the south aisle

Given in memory of Maria King.

The sacrament of the eucharist is emphasised in the figure of Christ who holds the chalice. That only a couple are depicted receiving communion is perhaps also suggestive of the sacrament of marriage. The apostle John stands with the fire of Pentecost descending, echoing the coming of the Holy Spirit and the sacrament of confirmation below.
