Etched Prophets in the Courtyard Windows
The windows surrounding the courtyard will
depict the four major Prophets and twelve minor Prophets of the Old Testament. Two of the major Prophets (Isaiah and Ezekiel) will be located on the north side of the courtyard in the two arched windows flanking the main entry (as part of the future stained glass project of the church). The remaining fourteen windows (six minor Prophets on the east and west side, and two major Prophets on the south side flanking the Baptistry entry) have an "etched" look.
The prophets called their people to be faithful to their Covenantal relationship with God, who was always faithful to them. As we move from the Gathering Area and Baptismal Area through the corridors into the new church, the prophets etched into the glass lead us to Christ, whom we encounter in Word and Sacrament.
