Abbey Church virtual tour
Etched glass doors
glass doors separate the sanctuary from the church entrance as well as
the Blessed Sacrament Chapel from the Eucharistic Hall. The etchings
were done by Seth Polanski in 1976, and they depict an array of things.
Images on the glass in the entry are taken from the writings of the
prophet Ezekiel. They represent the traditional symbols for the four
evangelists: John, the eagle; Matthew, the man; Mark, the lion; and Luke
the ox. Central on the doors of the Blessed Sacrament Chapel is the tree
of life, and there are images of the Cathedral of Chartres and Saint
Martin as Bishop of Tours.
