About the Artwork

Stained glass by V. L. Berthelsdorf of Lutz, Florida (near Tampa) replaced gold mottled glass starting in the mid 1980s. The first window designed and installed in 1988 was of Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane. The rest followed over the next 15 years as memorial gifts were received. In the first few windows, Christ has a halo around his head. But a more “Protestant” ethic presents Christ without a halo in the other windows.
