The Bicentennial Window
The Bicentennial Window, at the Cathedral Church's ecclesiastical West end (geogrphaically at the East end), portrays Jesus preaching from a fishing boat near shore of the Sea of Galilee. One of its unique features is the combination of stained glass and clear glass. Christ is seen pointing to a sower on a distant hillside. The sower becomes the text for one of His most famous parables. As the Sea of Galilee extends to the horizon, natural skylight streams through the clear glass in the upper portions of the window. Standing in the transept or chancel, an outline of a high-rise apartment building can be seen above the horizon. The image created symbolizes the mission of the cathedral to proclaim the gospel to the city, diocese and contemporary world in which it is set. The window was the gift of many members and friends of the cathedral congregation. It was designed and crafted by Burton/Hrabi, a Prince Edward Island firm and was installed by Kidston Glass of Halifax.
The window was the gift of many members and friends of the cathedral congregation, to mark the 200th anniversary of the arrival of first Bishop, Charles Inglis.
