Feast of the Holy Trinity

At the top of the Assumption window close to the Cathedral entrance, we find an unusual image: a pictorial representation of the Holy Trinity. The Father is at the top of the image, the Son to the left and the Holy Spirit to the right. All three are crowned as a sign of their sovereignty, but Christ also has a crown in His hand. The rest of the window depicts Mary being assumed into heaven; the crown He holds is for her. The crown being offered to Mary, a human being, reminds us all of an important truth: the one God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - calls us to share His life and His glory in heaven.
