Chapel Windows II: Conversion

Conversion

The Benedictine charism is to seek God as members of a cenobitic community and to respond through prayer and ministry. This charism is reflected in symbol in the beautiful stained glass windows in our chapel.

CONVERSION

Conversion is symbolized by crossed keys and a crown.

The vow of conversion, a gradual passing from death to life in union with God, is reflected in these penitential symbols.
