The stained glass windows in Our Lady of Fatima church in Newtown

It is difficult to appreciate the stained glass windows in the sanctuary in the church of Our Lady of Fatima, as the sunlight only lights them up early in the morning. So I wanted to bring attention to these two beautiful windows :

  • The Annunciation: Archangel Gabriel visiting Mary with a joyful message  and the Holy Spirit depicted as a dove.
  • The Nativity : The ox and the donkey around the manger: Jesus and his loving mother Mary. The angel warning St. Joseph to flee to Egypt to escape Herod’s wrath.

These two windows were a donation of religious sisters in the USA and were obtained and installed by Fr. Charles Vermeulen C.Ss.R.
