Chapel Windows VII: Light

Light - candle chi-rho

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.


Light is symbolized by a candle and Chi-Rho.

We are witnesses to the resurrection of Jesus and carry the Gospel message wherever the Spirit leads us. We are called to minister and prophesy according to the light of Christ within us.

Let nothing be preferred to the Work of God – Rule of Benedict 43:3
