Creation Date

1932

Description

Dedication: “To the Glory of God and in loving memory of Stephen Grant, 1847 – 1923, and of his wife Julia Christian, 1846-1932. Erected by their Children, 1932.”

The window depicts the famous quote from Matthew 19:14, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.” On the left, three small children with their parents are being presented to Christ to be blessed. On the right, Christ receives the children, as shown by a small child clothed in gold. Typical of McCausland’s style, the background contains trees and other natural elements along with canopies on top of and borders around the window.
