Jesus and woman at wellJesus glorified and knocking at door

Stained Glass

at the Norwegian Lutheran Memorial Church in Chicago

There are two stained glass windows located mid-way up two staircases leading up to the sanctuary. The one on the north end depicts a scene, from scripture, of Christ speaking to the woman at the well. On the south end are two panels. One depicts Christ's purified body at His resurrection, the other His symbolic knocking at the door which must be opened from within. Above these panels is the crown of heaven.



Christ prays at Gethsemaneangel announces Christ's resurrectionOn each side the altar are beautiful stained glass windows which provide soft illumination. At the left is a depiction of Christ praying in the garden of Gethsemane prior to his arrest and later crucifiction. At the right is a depiction of a scene in which an angel announces Christ's resurrection.



The Lord our ShepherdAt the rear of the church, above the balcony, is a grouping of stained glass windows with a depiction of Our Lord as Shepherd.


Stained glass windows along each sidewall of the sanctuary complete the beauty of the sanctuary.
