The peacocks and monkeys I posted yesterday are from a window in St. John’s Episcopal Church in Gloucester.  They (the church, not the monkeys and peacocks) graciously gave me permission to go photograph their stained glass windows, which are GORGEOUS.  I highly recommend visiting to see them.  The church is open for prayer and meditation Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to noon, and they don’t mind if you look at the windows too…

Here is a shot of the full window:

Almost all the windows feature ships, boats, or other nautical themes from the bible. I’ll post more photos and info over the coming days.  These windows are a real treasure!

    Glad to know where these peacocks and monkeys came from. Maybe I’ll be a little safer driver with my eyes on the road now rather than watching for a stained glass window! Thanks for sharing these, Fr. Matt – they are beautiful.
