The window was identified as the work of Joyce Meredith by Peter Jones.

Text with St Catherine of Siena: 'Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God'; below St Margaret: 'She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.'

Memorial to Catherine Willis Pegg, died in New Zealand Oct. 1928, and given by her husband.


St Catherine of Siena (1347-80) mystic, granted the stigmata without visible lesions. St Margaret of Scotland (c.1045-93), wife of King Malcolm III, noted for her solicitude for orphans and the poor. Thus the choice of the Biblical text here which sees the Good Wife from Proverbs as the 'type' of her life. The text associated here with Catherine of Siena, from the Beatitudes, provides the 'type' for her visionary experiences and the stigmata.
