October 23, 2018 – Winnipeg, Manitoba Two new stained glass windows are coming soon to Christ the King Chapel at St. Paul’s College. The windows will rest on either side of the main exterior Chapel doors. This project is spearheaded by Prof. Rosemarie Finlay, Christine Butterill, Fr. Eduardo Soto-Para, SJ, Matthew Semchyshyn, and our Campus Ministry team. The new stained glass pieces are designed by artist Lucinda Doran of Prairie Studio Glass and will feature St. Paul the Apostle and St. Ignatius of Loyola. Winnipeg goldsmith Ludwig Nickel designed the exterior doors using as inspiration the first two verses of the 22nd chapter of the Apocalypse describing the Tree and the River of Life.
