Description

Dedication: “To all who served in the W.A., 1889 - 1967”

“Mirror, mirror hanging on the wall, Which is the fairest window of them all?”

The Priscilla Window stands out in the church due to Williams’ abstract geometric design and jewel-like colours. In the window, Priscilla holds a strip of purple cloth and a needle. Along with her husband, Aquila, she was an early Christian convert. They were tent makers and Paul lived and worked with them. They represent Christian cooperation, hospitality, and service. The window commemorates the service of devoted women of the church. The lower panel highlights work of the Women’s Auxiliary of the Missionary Society of the Anglican Church of Canada, which started in this church’s parish in 1889. Their weekly meetings coupled spirituality with knitting, quilting, and making garments for the missions in the Northwest Territories and India.
